“How to Murder Your Husband” author has confessed to killing her husband, according to a prosecutor. The Oregon romance novelist allegedly slipped up and admitted to the murder by mistake.
Nancy Crampton Brophy, 71, the accused, allegedly went into detail about the homicide with an inmate who she was living with, claimed the Multnomah County Senior Deputy District Attorney Shawn Overstreet, according to Oregon Live.
On June 2, 2018, Nancy Crampton Brophy allegedly killed her husband, Daniel Brophy, 63. According to police, Nancy Crampton Brophy shot Daniel Brophy in the back of the head and again while he was on the floor. Because of financial issues, she needed the $1.5 million payout and allegedly committed the murder.
Accidentally, the novelist made the comment to a cellmate, according to Overstreet. The prosecutor said that the cellmate should testify after Nancy Crampton Brophy’s attorneys make their case.
“Ms. Brophy held her arms apart, like a wingspan, and said, ‘I was this far away when the shooting happened,’” Overstreet said.
Overstreet said Nancy Crampton Brophy then corrected herself and stated that the shooting happened within a close range.
After commenting, Nancy Crampton Brophy seemed embarrassed, and their relationship became “very awkward,” the inmate, Andrea Jacobs, told detectives.
“Ms. Jacobs reported that it became very awkward,” Overstreet said.
During opening statements in the trial, the defense said that Nancy Crampton Brophy was at a Starbucks when the shooting occurred and produced messages between the partners that showed they were on good terms.
