PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - A Multnomah County judge says that in two weeks he will lift a protective order that has kept many details secret in the case against a self-published romance writer accused of killing her chef husband 10 months ago.

The Oregonian/OregonLive reports Circuit Judge Kenneth Walker on Friday denied the request by Nancy Crampton Brophy’s attorney to keep the details sealed.

Defense attorney Kathleen Dunn had argued that reporters will write about the information if released and that will jeopardize Crampton Brophy’s ability to get a fair trial.

Crampton Brophy’s case, however, already has drawn national and international attention because she wrote an essay titled “How To Murder Your Husband.”

The essay was published years before police found her husband, Daniel Brophy, dead June 2. Prosecutors say Crampton Brophy fatally shot him.

She has pleaded not guilty and is being held without bail.
