OR v. BROPHY (2022)

Romance author Nancy Crampton-Brophy is accused of killing her husband in 2018. Students at the now-closed Oregon Culinary Institute found the body of Chef Daniel Brophy on June 2. He had been shot in the back and chest. Authorities say the couple had fallen behind on their mortgage. Nancy stood to inherit more than a million dollars from his insurance and worker's compensation policies. Surveillance video surrounding the culinary school revealed a minivan similar to the one Nancy drove the morning Daniel was killed. Investigators say Nancy claimed to be home during the killing. Nancy is charged with second-degree murder.
