Angela Siler-Fisher, 42, is charged with criminal trespass and harassment, stemming from an incident that occurred over the weekend.
According to court documents, on Sunday, Siler-Fisher allegedly broke into the home of her husband's co-worker, Dr. Marcelle Mallery, by kicking in the doggy door. Once inside, she reportedly wrote an expletive and "homewrecker" in red lipstick on Mallery's bathroom mirror.
"It's an emotional response that a lot of people would have. It's more aggressive than normal," KTRK legal analyst Joel Androphy said. "She was basically going to the house to retaliate against her for breaking up her marriage."
Mallery had received a phone call from Siler-Fisher's husband, warning her that Angela was on the way there. She left the house with her children, and was not home at the time of the break-in.
Mallery told authorities that Siler-Fisher called her while on the way to her home and threatened to beat her. The victim also received a text message from Siler-Fisher with a photo of her bedroom, as well as dozens more text messages over the course of hours.
Video surveillance cameras reportedly captured Siler-Fisher at the victim's home.
"Instead of the victim, you are now the defendant. And so you want to maintain your status as the victim because that's going to get you the relief in the divorce court," Androphy said.
The Baylor College of Medicine website identifies Angela Siler-Fisher as Medical Director for Ben Taub Hospital's Emergency Center. Baylor issued the following statement: "We understand that this is a private matter for Dr. Fisher and does not impact her work at Baylor College of Medicine. She is an assistant professor of emergency medicine at BCM."
We tried to reach out to Dr. Mallery, but we couldn't get to her front door.
We went to Dr. Fisher's home. We could see and hear her inside but she wouldn't answer the door. We tried to talk to a young lady leaving her home but she also wouldn't answer our questions. Now, she will ultimately have to answer in court.
