Missouri Prison Employee Accused Of Murdering Husband To Marry Inmate
This is absolutely insane.
According to a story in the NYDailyNews, a female employee of the Jefferson City Correctional Center, Amy Murray, was arrested and charged with first-degree murder after the body of her poisoned husband Joshua Murray was found inside their burned home back in December. It is believed that she used Ethylene Glycol aka antifreeze to kill him.
Miller County Sheriff Louie Gregoire told KMIZ that something about this situation didn’t smell right:
“It looked suspicious,” Miller County Sheriff Louie Gregoire told KMIZ. “The sheriff’s office detectives came in with the fire marshal’s office department and started investigating it and continued from there.”
Despite working in a prison, Amy isn’t too good at this criminal thing according to Lake Expo:
“Several phone conversations between Amy Murray and Eugene Claypool talked about having a life now that Joshua Murray was deceased and out of the picture,” read probable cause documents obtained by Lake Expo.
Expo reveals that Amy had been working to get ol’ Eugene an early release from prison as he had already served almost 20 years for fatally stabbing a 72-year-old man.
THAT’S the man you want to call “husband”? A man who kills elderly people?! Guess there is a romantic connection amongst killers. SMH.
