    Nancy Crampton-Brophy was arrested on Wednesday at her Washington County home in the shooting death of her husband, Daniel Brophy.

    A self-published romance writer charged with murdering her husband pleaded not guilty on Monday.

    Nancy Crampton Brophy, 68, was arraigned in Portland, Oregon, where she is accused of shooting her husband of 27 years, Daniel Brophy, at the Oregon Culinary Institute.

    Daniel Brophy was a well-liked instructor there. He was alone in a kitchen early on June 2 when he was killed, and there were no obvious suspects.

    According to court documents, investigators believe Crampton Brophy, who once penned an essay titled "How to Murder Your Husband," killed him with a 9mm pistol.
