Were Brophys in financial ruin? Witness says no

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) – The Brophys’ financial situation might not have been as bleak as the prosecution’s witness made it out to be, according to a financial expert who testified for the defense in Nancy Crampton Brophy’s murder trial Tuesday.

Nancy is accused of murdering her husband, Daniel Brophy, at the Oregon Culinary Institute on June 2, 2018. The prosecution argued that part of her motive in the murder was to claim the funds she’d receive from her husband’s life insurance and escape the financial ruin and potential foreclosure that loomed in her future.
