Man Convicted in 1994 Nicotine-Poison Death


Man Convicted in 1994 Nicotine-Poison Death

A former nuclear engineer on Tuesday was convicted of murder for
poisoning his wife with a lethal dose of nicotine in Southern California
in 1994.
Jurors in Orange County Superior Court found Paul Curry, 57, guilty of
first-degree murder in the death of his then-50-year-old wife, Linda, a
district attorney’s statement said.
Curry killed his wife to collect more than half a million dollars in
life insurance and benefits after she died, prosecutors said. He sedated
his wife with the sleep drug Ambien before injecting her with nicotine,
Ebrahim Baytieh, deputy district attorney for Orange County, said
during the trial.
Curry’s wife suffered from a series of health issues including anxiety,
depression and stomach pain, Curry’s lawyer, Lisa Kopelman, has said.
A message seeking comment was left for Kopelman on Tuesday.
But she insisted on Curry’s innocence during trial. “This case is all
about conjecture, innuendo and suspicions, and that is not what guilt
beyond a reasonable doubt is,” she said, according to City News Service.
Curry and his wife met in 1989 when they worked at the San Onofre
nuclear power plant in northern San Diego County. Curry had previously
been married, but he left his former wife after she was rejected for
life insurance, Baytieh said.
Curry was arrested in 2010 in Salina, Kansas, where he had rebuilt his life and worked as a building official.
“For 16 years, he thought he had gotten away with it,” Baytieh told the
Orange County Register, “and now he’s going to prison for the rest of
his life.”
