‘How to Murder Your Husband’ writer found guilty of murdering her husband
This sounds like something out of a made for tv movie or from a murder mystery book or maybe real life.
Nancy Crampton Brophy, 71, is a romance novelist and she wrote an essay titled ” How To Murder Your Husband”, Whats ironic is that she was just found guilty of doing just that. After two days of deliberation a jury found her guilty of second-degree murder for fatally shooting her husband at his work place., where there was no cameras or witnesses. Her goal they say was to collect on lucrative life insurance policies.
Prosecutors said she was motivated by money problems and a life insurance policy. She owned the same make and model of gun used to kill her husband and was seen on surveillance camera footage driving to and from the culinary institute,
They also talked about how she bought bought a ghost gun kit and a handgun. To which she and her lawyer said the gun was for protection and the ghost gun was for writing research as she was considering writing a story about a woman who slowly acquired gun parts in order to complete a weapon and turn the tables on an abusive partner.
Her sentencing has been scheduled for June 13.
Is that art imitating life or the other way around.
