‘How to Murder Your Husband’ Writer Jailed for Life Over Spouse Killing

An American writer, who wrote an article called “How to Kill Your Husband,” was sentenced to life in prison Monday for the fatal shooting of her husband.

A judge in northwestern Oregon told her that Nancy Crampton Brophy, 71, would be eligible to file for parole after 25 years.

Crampton Brophy’s month-long murder trial heard how the author used the barrel of a gun he had bought on eBay to kill her husband in hopes of raising hundreds of thousands of dollars in life insurance.

The weapon, which she claimed was obtained as a search for a new novel, was never found.

Chef Daniel Brophy was found on the floor of a classroom at a culinary institute that no longer exists where he worked, in June 2018. He was shot twice.

CCTV footage showed his wife driving in the area at the time.

The writer, whose novel series includes The Wrong Never Felt Right, The Wrong Husband and The Wrong Lover, claimed she had no recollection of being there, but thought she was in the neighborhood trying to get inspiration for a new work of fiction.

Crampton Brophy, whose lawyers said last month they would appeal the verdict, denied the murder, insisting that years of financial strife are behind the couple and that she had no reason to kill her husband.

“Where’s the motive? Crampton Brophy said as she quarreled with the attorney general during her trial.

“The editor would laugh and say, ‘I think you need to work a little bit harder on this story, you have a big gap in it. “

Her blog How To Kill Your Husband, which is still readily available on the Internet, discusses the methods and motives for sending an unwanted husband.

These include financial gain and the use of a firearm, though he notes that guns are “high, messy, and require some skill.”

“But the thing I know about murder is that every one of us has it when we’ve been pushed far enough,” the article reads.
