PARK CITY, KS - FEBRUARY 26: Police tape hangs across the street in front of the house that Dennis Rader lives in February 26, 2005 in Park City, Kansas. Rader is the suspect whom police have arrested on suspicion of first-degree murder in connection with the 10 deaths now tied to the serial killer known as BTK.

A romance novelist… who once wrote an essay titled “How to Murder Your Husband” has been found guilty of…  murdering her husband.

Prosecutors say 71-year-old Nancy Crampton Brophy shot and killed her husband, using an untraceable ‘ghost gun’ made from parts she purchased online. She then collected a $1.8 million life insurance policy in his name. Brophy said the gun purchases were done as ‘research’ for a novel she was working on.

Brophy self-published romance novels with titles like The Wrong Husband and The Wrong Lover, and in 2011 wrote a blog post titled ‘How To Murder Your Husband’ where she discussed various murder tactics such as poison, knives, guns, or hiring a hitman.

She’ll be sentenced June 13th…
