How to murder your husband (and not get away with it)

Police in Portland, Oregon arrested Nancy Crampton-Brophy, 68, last Wednesday and charged her with murder and the unlawful use of a weapon.

As his wife, Nancy Crampton-Brophy wrote on Facebook expressing her shock and sadness, police continued to search for her husband's killer.

A USA woman accused of fatally shooting her husband is a self-published romance writer who once penned an essay titled "How To Murder Your Husband".

Brophy worked as a chef at the city's Oregon Culinary Institute - the same place where his body was found earlier this year.

On June 2, 2018 Brophy was found shot in the kitchen area of the school by his horrified students.

She says her romance suspense stories are about "pretty men and strong women, about families that don't always work and about the joy of finding love and the difficulty of making it stay". In this case, the opposite is clearly true. My husband and best friend, Chef Dan Brophy was killed yesterday morning.

She is due in court again September 17.

She was arraigned Thursday (local time), appearing in blue inmate clothing, and ordered jailed without bail, court records show.

The Washington Post reports that Crampton-Brophy wrote a post in 2011 entitledHow to Murder Your Husband.

"I find it is easier to wish people dead than to actually kill them". "But the thing I know about murder is that every one of us have it in him/her when pushed far enough".

On her marriage, she writes: "Like all marriages, we've had our ups and downs, more good times than bad".

She penned an article entitled, "How to Kill Your Husband", in 2011.
