Police allege a Missouri prison nurse, intent on marrying an inmate, poisoned her husband with antifreeze before setting fire to their home in an effort to conceal his murder, PEOPLE confirms.

Amy Murray, 40, was arrested Thursday in connection with the death of her husband, Joshua Murray, whose body was discovered inside their burning Iberia home in December, the Miller County Sheriff’s office said.

Emergency responders answering a 911 call of a house fire found Joshua’s body inside the master bedroom on Dec. 11, 2018. Investigators quickly determined an accelerant was used to start the fire, making it the work of arson. 

An autopsy showed Joshua was dead before the fire started and found he had been poisoned with antifreeze.
