Author of "How to Murder Your Husband" is Convicted of Murdering Her HusbandIn another case of fact being stranger than fiction, an Australian romance novelist - who once published a novel titled How to Murder Your Husband - has just been convicted of murdering her husband. Seventy-one-year-old Nancy Crampton Brophy was found guilty of committing second-degree murder on her husband, chef Daniel Brophy, 63.The homicide occurred in 2018 at the culinary institute where Daniel Brophy had been working. Nancy was caught on surveillance camera leaving the crime scene at the time of the murder. Furthermore, she also owned the same model of gun that had killed her husband. Although the murder weapon was never found, a prosecutor accused Nancy of swapping out the barrel of the gun used in the shooting and then discarding the barrel. The most chilling part: Nancy had written the same scenario in her novel.#murder #author #HowToMurderYourHusband #NancyBrophy
Canada Finally Outlawed Space MurderSpace travel just got a little safer today! Canada has finally extended their criminal jurisdiction to space.“A Canadian crew member who, during a space flight, commits an act or omission outside Canada that if committed in Canada would constitute an indictable offense is deemed to have committed that act or omission in Canada,” reads the measure included in Bill C-19, the 443-page document implementing the provisions of the 2022 federal budget.That means, every Canadian who commits a criminal act during their time in space will be apprehended upon returning to Earth, as reported by Calgary Herald.The news begs the question though: were Canadians, or space travelers of other nationalities, free to commit crime prior to this ruling?Image: Marcus Urbenz/Unsplash#crime #murder #space #Canada
