Prison Nurse Fatally Poisoned Husband to Marry Convicted Murderer

13 February 2019

A Missouri prison nurse who had an affair with a lifer may now face a life sentence of her own.

Amy Murray, 40, has been released after posting $750,000 bond following her arrest last week on first-degree murder, second-degree arson, tampering with physical evidence and armed criminal action charges, according to Miller County jail records.

According to a statement from the Miller County Sheriff's Office, Joshua Murray's body was discovered after investigators were called to a house fire in Iberia, Missouri on December 11 and found him dead inside the home.

A Missouri jail nurse who allegedly wanted to marry a man convicted of killing a lottery victor has been charged with poisoning her husband and setting their home on fire, according to court records.

Fire marshals determined that the blaze originated inside the master bedroom and that an accelerant was used to start the inferno, according to the Miller County Sheriff's Office.

Murray worked part-time as a nurse at the Jefferson City Correctional Facility, where she had a "romantic relationship" with inmate Eugene Claypool that had been ongoing "for some time", according to authorities and charging documents.

A Missouri woman has been accused of poisoning and killing her husband so she could marry her inmate lover.

Clayton has been locked up for more than 18 years in the deadly stabbing of a 72-year-old Missouri man who won $1.7 million in a lottery game. Then, she allegedly started the fire before taking their dogs and 11-year-old son to McDonald's. As an alibi, Murray said she found the house on fire when she returned and the smoke was too heavy for her to go inside, according to a probable cause statement. "Amy Murray talks about wanting Joshua Murray to come home from Nebraska and she is exhausted of being around him". The documents say they discussed in recorded conversations "having a life" now that her husband was "out of the picture".

Amy Murray allegedly told the inmate she wanted to divorce her husband, and later told the inmate they could get married because her husband was dead.
