Prison nurse accused in husband’s death bonds out of jail

(AP) — A Mid-Missouri prison nurse, who allegedly wanted to marry a man convicted of killing a lottery winner charged with poisoning her husband and setting their home on fire, is out of jail.

Amy Murray, 40, is facing charges including first-degree murder and arson in the Dec. 11 death of her husband, Joshua Murray. Investigators said he was found dead in the master bedroom of the couple’s burned-out home in Iberia, and that his wife later told the JCCC prison inmate in a recorded phone call that they could get married because her husband was “out of the picture.”

An autopsy determined her husband was poisoned by a chemical in antifreeze and likely died before the blaze started.

Amy Murray posted a $750,000 bond and is out of jail.
