Writer accused of killing husband wants jail log sealed
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — A lawyer for a self-published romance writer accused of killing her chef husband is asking a judge to seal the woman’s jail visitor log.
A spokesman for the Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office says a judge is hearing the defense motion Monday afternoon.
Nancy Crampton Brophy is charged with shooting and killing her husband of 27 years, Daniel Brophy, at the Oregon Culinary Institute. Daniel Brophy was a well-liked instructor there. The 63-year-old was alone in a kitchen early on June 2 when he was killed, and there were no obvious suspects.
Crampton Brophy once penned an essay titled “How to Murder Your Husband.”
She pleaded not guilty when arraigned in September.
The judge has sealed other documents in the high-profile case.
