Judge: Husband wanted wife's death to look like a suicide

(Continued)

But while he acknowledged Purcell’s own reported suicide attempts (in which he sat in a running car in the garage with the door closed and a snowblower running nearby, and his thoughts about veering into oncoming cars on the highway), the judge concluded that he was also “profoundly unhappy with his marriage.”

The judge’s order means Purcell will remain in custody at Middleton Jail for up to 90 days.
