‘How to Murder Your Husband’ author found guilty of murdering husband

How to Murder Your Husband

The author of “How to Murder Your Husband,” an essay, was found guilty of murdering her husband.

Nancy Crampton Brophy was convicted of second-degree murder in the death of her chef husband Daniel Brophy.

On June 2, 2018, a jury of seven women and five men in Portland convicted the 71-year-old guilty of killing and shooting her 63-year-old husband as he prepared to work at the Oregon Culinary Institute in Southwest Portland.

Crampton Brophy’s essay, which was published in 2011, described numerous strategies for carrying out an untraceable killing and expressed her desire to avoid being caught.

Despite claims that the essay’s topic and content could be used as evidence in a trial for the murder of a husband, Judge Christopher Ramras dismissed it.

As Crampton Brophy entered the stand during the trial, a prosecutor alluded to the essay’s topics.

Crampton Brophy was allegedly motivated by money issues and her husband’s life insurance policy, according to the prosecution.

Crampton Brophy was spotted on surveillance camera footage driving to and from his culinary institute with the identical make and model of gun used to kill her spouse.

Despite the fact that the murder weapon was never located, prosecutors said that Crampton Brophy replaced the barrel of the gun used in the crime and then discarded it.

Lawyers for Crampton Brophy claimed that her possession of the gun components was simply part of the author’s creative process and that Brophy was slain in a botched robbery.

Crampton Brophy explained that she was only near the culinary school by chance, having parked nearby to work on her writing.


She further claimed that money could not have driven her because their financial issues had been remedied at the time by cashing in a portion of Brophy’s retirement savings plan.

Crampton Brophy was arrested in September 2018 after the murder and has remained in detention ever since.

She had no evident reaction when she heard the decision.
