Novelist Nancy Brophy who penned How To Murder Your Husband has been charged with the murder of her husband, Dan Brophy.
OR cops were silent on arrest details such as why Crampton-Brophy, 68, was taken into custody only last week for the June shooting.
In a plot-twist pretty much straight out of Basic Instinct, an author who wrote a story titled How To Murder Your Husband has been arrested for the murder of her husband.
Nancy Crampton-Brophy, 68, was arrested on suspicion of murdering her husband, Daniel Brophy, 63, in June at the Oregon Culinary Institute. He was an instructor there.More news: Putin: Novichok suspects are not criminals
On Thursday (local time), prosecutors and Crampton Brophy's defense attorney said little as the defendant was brought before a judge to hear the charges against her.
"As a romantic suspense writer, I spend a lot of time thinking about murder and, consequently, about police procedure", she wrote in the 2011 essay "How to Murder Your Husband". "While I appreciate toy loving responses, I am overwhelmed".
"She never showed any signs of being upset or sad", McConnell said.More news: Arrowverse Crossover: Grimm's Elizabeth Bitsie Tulloch Cast as Lois Lane
The costume was hand-sewn by Crampton-Brophy, who spoke of her late husband. Now, authorities say she followed through with killing her own husband in real life.
Crampton-Brophy remains in jail in lieu of bond, and has also been charged with unlawful use of a weapon. McConnell recalled, and she responded, "No, I'm a suspect". She wrote she would not want to "worry about blood and brains splattered on the wall", or "remembering lies".
"I find it is easier to wish people dead than to actually kill them".
The author had expressed her disbelief over the killing of her husband through a Facebook post and had even announced a candlelight vigil at the institute where her husband was shot.More news: Beating Serena Williams triggers advertising jackpot for Naomi Osaka
