‘For my Facebook friends and family, I have sad news to relate. My husband and best friend, Chef Dan Brophy was killed yesterday morning. For those of you who are close to me and feel this deserved a phone call, you are right, but I’m struggling to make sense of everything right now,’ she wrote.

She was booked into jail on charges of murder and unlawful use of a weapon.
She is scheduled for her first court appearance in Multnomah County Thursday afternoon.
