“How to Murder Your Husband” Writer Convicted of Murdering Husband

From a New York Times story by Mike Baker headlined “”How to Murder Your Husband’ Writer Convicted of Murdering Husband”:

A romance novelist who wrote about “How to Murder Your Husband” was convicted in her husband’s killing on Wednesday following a contentious trial in which prosecutors leaned on a “puzzle” of circumstantial evidence to portray the author as a duplicitous spouse who spent months quietly plotting the perfect crime.

Nancy Brophy, 71, stood quietly, a pandemic mask covering her nose and mouth, as the verdict was handed down, seven weeks after the trial began in Portland, Ore.
