Romance writer found guilty of murdering husband

A jury in Portland, Oregon has convicted a novelist who once wrote an essay entitled “How to Kill Your Husband” for shooting her husband to death.

Daniel Brophy died four years ago.

KOIN-TV reports that a seven-woman, five-man jury in Multnomah County has handed down a guilty verdict on a second-degree murder charge on Wednesday after a two-day debate.

He was shot dead while preparing for work at the Oregon Culinary Institute in Southwest Portland.

His wife Crampton Brophy was arrested three months later, in September 2018.

The prosecutor determined that the writer’s reason for killing her husband was to charge her life with insurance policies to alleviate her debts.

Crampton Brophy’s 2011 trial was not used as evidence at trial.

The verdict will be on June 13.

One of Crampton Brophy’s attorneys said the defense team intends to appeal.
