But Crampton-Brophy is due in court on September 17 for a hearing.

The since-deleted post offered advice like not using a hitman or a lover to do the deed as they are inclined to "rat you out to the police". "Never a good idea".

She was charged with murder and unlawful use of a weapon by OR police on 6 September, almost three months after the murder.

"Divorce is expensive, and do you really want to split your possessions?" Rather than hire a hit-man she allegedly pulled the trigger herself.

A 68-year-old romance author in OR who once wrote a novel called "The Wrong Husband" was arrested last week. because she's accused of KILLING her husband back in June. She has not yet filed a plea, and her lawyer declined to comment when contacted by The Post.

The author has appeared in court, but police and prosecutors are yet to reveal the alleged motive.

"It's a big shock". "It's craziness and it's just not true", she stated to ABC News. "But we're not making any statements".


Crampton-Brophy, the author of a series of self-published romance novels, coincidentally wrote a post on her blog in November 2011 titled, "How To Murder Your Husband", which has now caught the world's attention because... you know. Police had no description of the suspect.

The seven-year-old essay was first spotted by Oregon Live.

"I have sad news to relate", Nancy wrote in a Facebook post, in part. My husband and best friend, Chef Dan Brophy was killed yesterday morning. Brophy was a lead instructor at the culinary institute, where he was remembered as "the resident encyclopedia of knowledge" with "offbeat sense of humor and creative approach to teaching".

"He was a person who did what he loved: he loved teaching, he loved mushrooms, he loved his family". There is a candle-light vigil at Oregon Culinary Institute tomorrow, Monday, June 4th at 7 pm. Crampton Brophy came, too.

But a neighbor, Don McConnell, told the Oregonian of an odd interaction with the widow.

The pair had been married for 27 years before the shocking death in June.
