A pilot who went on the run for two months after allegedly shooting dead his wife, his mistress and her daughter when he was caught cheating, has been charged with murder.
Gerald ‘Mike’ Bullinger is charged with three counts of first degree murder over the deaths of Cheryl Baker, Nadja Medley, 48, and 14-year-old Payton Medley on June 6.
Their bodies were discovered hidden inside a shed at Bullinger’s Caldwell, Idaho home.
But Bullinger, a 57-year-old pilot and outfitter, has been missing ever since the shooting. His car was found on July 12 abandoned by a campground near Moran, Wyoming.

The shooting took place in June after Bullinger’s wife Cheryl drove to the farmhouse he was doing up, as a ‘happy surprise’ for her husband, DailyMail.com has learned.
Baker, who had retired from her teacher job at Greenwood Charter School on June 6, decided to make the five-hour drive to Caldwell, Idaho weeks earlier than planned, rather than stay in Ogden, Utah to sell the family home.
Little did she know that Bullinger – who told his wife he was living in a trailer alone while fixing up the rundown property ready for her to move in – was actually playing happy family with his mistress of two years Nadja Medley and her teenage daughter Payton at the house.
Bullinger had told his wife Cheryl Baker, he was fixing up the property for her to move in – but was actually living a secret double life with Medley [‘photo] in the new home.
The trio were seen in a series of photos and videos on the property posted on Medley’s Facebook page, including one in which she wrote: ‘My new place’, with two ‘love-struck’ emojis next to a video showing beautiful open fields with the farm buildings in the background.
What happened next isn’t clear but the dead bodies of Baker, 57, Medley, 47, and 14-year-old Payton were all found lined up and covered with plastic in a shed on the property on June 19.
Police are now searching for Bullinger, 60, who is considered a ‘person of interest’ in the deaths.
