“How to Murder Your Husband” writer found guilty of murdering husband
A jury in Portland, Oregon, found a self-published romance novelist guilty of fatally shooting her husband four years ago after reading an essay titled “How to Murder Your Husband”.
Nancy Crampton Brophy, 71, was found guilty of second-degree murder on Wednesday after a jury of seven women and five men deliberated for two days over Daniel Brophy’s death, according to reports.
Brophy, a 63-year-old chef, was slain while preparing for work at the Oregon Culinary Institute in south-west Portland on June 2, 2018.

In the crowded Multnomah county courthouse, Crampton Brophy exhibited no visible emotion to the judgement.
One of Crampton Brophy’s attorneys, Lisa Maxfield, indicated the defence team would challenge the ruling.
Crampton Brophy was allegedly motivated by money troubles and a life insurance policy, according to prosecutors.
Crampton Brophy, on the other hand, claimed she had no reason to murder her husband and that their financial problems had been solved in large part by cashing in a portion of Brophy’s retirement savings plan.
According to court exhibits and testimony, she owned the same make and model of gun used to murder her husband and was seen driving to and from the culinary institute on surveillance footage. The gun that killed Brophy has never been located.

Crampton Brophy allegedly switched the barrel of the gun used in the shooting and then abandoned it, according to prosecutors.
The gun parts were the inspiration for Crampton Brophy’s writing, according to defence attorneys, who also suggested that Brophy was killed during a botched robbery.
Crampton Brophy testified that she had parked near the culinary school on the day of her husband’s death to work on her writing.
Crampton Brophy’s how-to guide outlined various methods for carrying out an untraceable murder and expressed a desire to avoid being caught.
The essay was omitted from the trial by circuit judge Christopher Ramras, who noted that it was published in 2011.
After Crampton Brophy on the stand, a prosecutor alluded to the essay’s topics without naming it.
Since her arrest in September 2018, Crampton Brophy has been held in jail. On June 13th, she will be sentenced.
