North Dakota woman Ina Kenoyer is accused of fatally poisoning her boyfriend, ... trends now
A North Dakota woman has been charged with fatally poisoning her boyfriend in order to obtain his $30million inheritance, received just hours earlier.
Ina Thea Kenoyer, 47, allegedly murdered Steven Edward Riley Jr, 51, by feeding him antifreeze on September 3, the day he had met with his lawyer to collect the whopping sum, police records state.
Investigators believe Kenoyer had 'financial motives' after learning that Riley planned to break off their relationship once he had received the inheritance.
Kenoyer told investigators she believed was entitled to the fortune as his common-law wife, a status North Dakota does not recognize, and planned to split the windfall with Riley's son.
Riley became ill on September 3 but his partner did nor call 911 until the following day, witnesses told the police.
