Colorado Dentist Accused of Killing Wife with Poison 

A dentist in Aurora, Colorado, was arrested last weekend after his wife was removed from life support and the authorities asserted that he caused her death by poisoning her. 

According to reports, just before 9:00 PM on March 15, a 45-year-old dentist who practices at the Summerbrook Dental Group brought his 43-year-old wife to a local hospital because she said her head hurt badly and that she was very dizzy. 

The woman, who has six children with her husband, was admitted to the facility, and the doctors noted that she was not in good shape. Her condition continued to worsen very quickly, and the medical staff had her taken to the intensive care unit. It was determined that she needed to be put on a ventilator. 

It was reported that not long after she was put on the machine, she was pronounced brain dead. 

The medical staff was suspicious about the reason for the woman’s condition, and they notified the authorities. The Aurora Police’s Major Crimes Homicide Unit opened an investigation.   

Very few details have been released at this time, but the police reported that they believe the woman was the victim of “a heinous, complex, and calculated murder” at the hands of her husband. 

Four days later, it was decided that the woman would be removed from the ventilator. 

The authorities believed they had enough evidence to get a warrant for the man’s arrest.  

At approximately 2:00 AM on March 19, the man was taken into custody and booked into the Aurora County Detention Facility. He is facing charges on suspicion of first-degree murder. 

The motive for the alleged murder has not been released at this time.
