A North Dakota woman fatally poisoned her boyfriend after learning about his plans to dump her — because he had inherited $30 million just hours earlier, police said.
Ina Thea Kenoyer, 47, was charged Monday with the Sept. 5 murder of Steven Edward Riley Jr., 51, a gruesome act that cops said was driven by “financial motives.”
“This case was extremely complex,” said investigations commander Capt. Dale Plessas of the Minot Police Department.
Riley became ill when he met with his lawyer Sept. 3 to collect the massive inheritance sum, witnesses told investigators, according to police records.
Kenoyer didn’t call 911 until the next day — when paramedics arrived to find Riley unresponsive in his Minot home.
