Kevin Murphy, owner of the auto glass company, was arrested in
April 2010 for allegedly murdering Edith Cora Tietge, 81, Kris Lynn

that Murphy has had an ongoing relationship with a married woman
for the last two years.
Murphy told investigators that neither his mother nor sister approved

had received a registered letter indicating the process of her divorce
had begun," according to the criminal complaint.
