On Wednesday, a Multnomah County jury in Portland found Mrs. Nancy guilty of second-degree murder.

However, on May 18, Mrs. Nancy’s cellmate Andrea Jacobs told prosecutors that the 71-year-old had unknowingly disclosed the details of her 26-year-old husband’s death. Such as New York Post, Mrs. Jobs says Mrs. Nancy told him that her husband’s heart had been shot twice. The novelists even described in detail the distance at which she shot her husband.
Prosecutors say Mrs. Nancy owned the same make and model gun that was used to kill her husband. Surveillance camera footage showed him driving at the Oregon Culinary Institute. Police never found the gun that Mrs. Nancy used to commit the crime, but prosecutors allege that the gunman exchanged the barrel of the gun used in the shooting and then threw it away.

Defense, on the other hand, claims that Mrs. Nancy’s gun was purchased to research her work as a novelist. Throughout the process, they draw the prosecution’s case based solely on circumstantial evidence and even portray their client’s marriage as love. Moreover, Mrs. Nancy testified that her presence at the culinary school on the day of her husband’s death was a mere coincidence and that she had parked in the area to do her writing work.
