Pennsylvania man Brian Bradley Giles took an almost jocular, and quite embittered, tone when Johnstown Fox affiliate WWCP recorded him amid his Thursday guilty verdict for murdering his wife, Nancy Giles.

“Nope, I’m innocent, but if this is what they want to do let them do it, man,” he said. “I’ve been railroaded before. It’s all good. There ain’t nothing I can hope for, right? Everybody got what they wanted.”

Prosecutors reportedly said that over time, the defendant told a total of 18 different stories about what happened to his wife. It turns out, however, death seems to follow him. Authorities in Cambria County said that they found human remains in the basement of the Johnstown home where the couple had lived, according to The Tribune-Democrat. All this happened not only after the murder conviction, but also amid his girlfriend Jilly Todaro’s ongoing disappearance.

“This is going to be a lengthy investigation and methodical process in removing these remains,” Cambria County Coroner Jeff Lees reportedly said.

    Authorities reportedly took less than three hours when executing the search warrant Friday morning in the 500 block of Franklin Street. They had been acting on information about a body possibly being in the basement, according to the outlet.

    That home is where Brian and Nancy Giles lived in an apartment before the wife disappeared in October 2018. Nancy Giles was reportedly found dead in a shallow grave in May 2019 near a trail on the Inclined Plane hillside in downtown Johnstown.

    Brian Giles was arrested in May 2022 for his wife’s murder.

    Todaro dated defendant Giles amid his Nancy’s disappearance. She also lived in the Franklin Street apartment. She too went missing — in that matter, she disappeared in December 2020, and it is unclear what happened to her. Authorities have not suggested if Todaro’s disappearance is connected to the recent discovery of human remains.
