Accused baby seller’s wife: It was a joke

The wife of a man accused of trying to sell their 6-month-old daughter on Craigslist said her husband meant the ad to be a joke.

“We all have different understanding(s) of jokes,” Michelle Edison said in an e-mail to the newspaper. “We have discussed it and he now realizes how others took it.”

She described her husband, 44-year-old Gregory G. Edison, as a “great dad” and said she has “no worries about him.”

Police are requesting prosecutors charge Gregory Edison with attempted child selling. The ad was posted Monday but removed by Craigslist within an hour.

Police learned of it from a TV news station. Police say Greg Edison called the station, then police, after learning of the investigation.

The Edisons live with their baby and 2-year-old child; police don’t believe Michelle Edison knew of the ad.
