Nurse killed husband to marry inmate

Amy Murray, 40, of Iberia, Mo., was accused of fatally poisoning her husband to marry an inmate.

According to a statement from the Miller County Sheriff's Office, Joshua Murray's body was discovered after investigators were called to a house fire in Iberia, Missouri on December 11 and found him dead inside the home.

The Boone County Medical Examiner's Office determined that Joshua likely died from being poisoned with ethylene glycol, commonly used as an antifreeze, WKEF reported.

Murray worked part-time as a nurse at the Jefferson City Correctional Facility, where she had a "romantic relationship" with inmate Eugene Claypool that had been ongoing "for some time", according to authorities and charging documents. "The sheriff's office detectives came in with the fire marshal's office department and started investigating it and continued from there".

At the time, Murray was working as a nurse at the Jefferson City Correctional Center when she began having a "romantic relationship" with inmate Eugene Claypool, who was convicted in the 2000 stabbing death of a $1.7 million elderly lottery victor.

Claypool and another man pleaded guilty to killing 72-year-old Donald Hardwick, who was attacked in his home on Christmas Day in 2000.

Police were suspicious of Murray's alleged account that she returned to find the house on fire and that the smoke was too intense for her to try to save her husband, according to the statement. She allegedly told Claypool in recorded phone conversations that she could have "a life" with him now that her husband was "out of the picture". Hardwick, who couldn't walk without using a walker, won a $1.7 million Missouri Lottery jackpot in 1998.

They also spoke of getting Claypool an attorney so he could be released from prison early.

Amy Murray, 40, was charged with first-degree murder, armed criminal action, second-degree arson and tampering with physical evidence in felony prosecution. During Wednesday's hearing, a judge will rule on the defense's motion to reduce her bond.
