How To M#rder Your Husband writer found guilty of k#lling her husband

A jury in the US city of Portland, Oregon, has convicted a self-published romance novelist who wrote an essay titled How to M#rder Your Husband of fatally sh@@ting her husband.

The 12-person jury found Nancy Crampton Brophy, 71, guilty of second-degree murder on Wednesday after deliberating for two days over Daniel Brophy’s de@th.

According to reports, Brophy, a 63-year-old chef, was killed on June 2, 2018 as he prepared for work at the Oregon Culinary Institute in south-west Portland. According to prosecutors, the author of the “Wrong Never Felt So Right” series of novels including “The Wrong Husband” and “The Wrong Lover,” had been in financial difficulties when she sho@t her chef husband twice.

She was arrested months later after security footage captured her car near the crime scene. Crampton-Brophy insisted her presence was due to her scouting a location for writerly inspiration.She said the gun, which police alleged was the m#rder weapon, had also been bought for research.

.
The defendant’s 2011 how-to treatise detailed various portions for commuting untraceable k#llingswritten in the form of a brainstorming exercise for writers.
Its opening reads: “As a romantic suspense writer, I spend a lot of time thinking about m#rder and, consequently, about police procedure. After all, if the m#rdee is supposed to set me free, I certainly don’t want to spend any time in jail.
.
.
Prosecutors told jurors Crampton Brophy was motivated by money problems and a life insurance policy. However, Crampton Brophy said she had no reason to k#ll her husband and their financial problems had largely been solved by cashing in a portion of Brophy’s retirement savings plan. Lawyers acting for Crampton-Murphy, who faces a life sentence for second-degree m#rder, said she will appeal against her conviction.
