Sheriff looking into death of womanís third husband
CHARLOTTE (AP) ó A sheriffís investigator in Florida says police are re-examining the death of a man who was the third husband of a North Carolina woman with five dead spouses.
Lt. Nancy Alvarez of the Monroe County Sheriffís Office said Tuesday her investigators are trying to find medical records for Richard Sills. Sills was shot to death in the home he shared with his wife, Betty, in Big Coppitt, Fla. in 1965.
At the time, police said he died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Police said his wife was the only other person in the room.
His wife, now Betty Neumar, hasnít been charged with any crime in Monroe County.
But the 76-year-old was recently charged in North Carolina with one count of solicitation of murder in the 1986 death of her fourth husband, Harold Gentry.
A telephone message left for Neumarís attorney was not returned Tuesday.
