Bakersfield man booked for torture and charged with murder

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KERO) – A Bakersfield man was arrested and jailed for torture and attempted murder after calling 911 on Saturday night.

According to the Bakersfield Police Department, 25-year-old Daniel Patrick Wilson has been charged with torture, attempted murder and wrongful imprisonment, including a crime and misdemeanor.

BPD said Saturday that officials were dispatched to a house on the 2600 block of Bishop Drive around 9 p.m. after Wilson called 911. When they arrived, they found a man who appeared to be attacked and tied with a rope. Officers at the scene said they had been overwhelmed by a strong chemical odor.

They quickly removed the victim from the house and the Hazmat team from the Bakersfield Fire Department responded to determine the cause of the chemical odor.

A Hazmat firefighter entered the house and ventilated the area so it was safe to enter. It was found that the house where the victim was found was running an active butane honey oil laboratory.

The victim was taken to the hospital where she is in critical but stable condition.

BPD said Wilson was in possession of possible fentanyl. Additional evidence related to drug sales and a firearm was also found on the spot.

Wilson was taken into custody at the scene. He is held at $ 1,190,000.

According to the inmate search in Kern County, he is due to appear in court on Tuesday at 3 p.m.
