The widow who wrote a book of grief after the death of her husband is accused of his murder

U.S. authorities have said a Utah widow who wrote a children’s book about coping with the passing of a parent after her husband’s death has been charged with his murder. This publication reports New York Times.

Mother of three, 33 years old Kouri Darden Richins from Summit County, was arrested on suspicion of poisoning her husband, Erika Richins. She is charged with “first-degree aggravated murder and three counts of second-degree possession of a prohibited substance with intent to distribute,” officials said.

Autopsy results showed that the victim died from a fentanyl overdose. The medical examiner found that the level of the drug in his system was nearly five times the lethal dose.

The allegations are based on the testimony of an “unnamed acquaintance” who claims to have sold fentanyl to her. They were put forward two months after Richins appeared on local television in a commercial for Are You With Me?, a picture book she wrote to help children cope with the death of a loved one.

Earlier, the media reported that a resident of Bashkiria tried to cut the throat of her sleeping daughter. She was sent to a psychiatric hospital.
