A jail nurse from Missouri is charged with first-degree murder in the death of her husband.
Amy Murray, 40, was charged Friday with first-degree murder after her husband Joshua Murray, 37, was found dead in a fire at the couple's home on December 11.
Joshua Murray, Amy’s husband, died in December 2018. The inmate was serving time for murder.
In a news release, the Miller County Sheriff’s Department said that a 911 call was received on December 11, 2018 reporting a house fire at a home in Iberia, Missouri.
“The body of Joshua Murray was located inside the residence,” according to the news release from Sheriff Louie Gregoire.
Investigators allege that she killed her husband Joshua Murray (left) to marry inmate Eugene Claypool (right) who has been in prison for more than 18 years for murder.
According to Fox 8, Claypool has been behind bars for 18 years “in the deadly stabbing of a 72-year-old man.”
After she allegedly set the fire, Murray took her 11-year-old son and dogs to a local McDonald’s restaurant, according to ABC 17.
Amy is currently at the Miller County Adult Detention Center on a $750,000 bond.
