Man accused of killing wife with eye drops

A North Carolina man has been charged with using eye drops to kill his wife of eight years.

Joshua Lee Hunsucker, 35, was arrested late last week, charged with the first-degree murder of Stacy Robinson in September 2018. His bail has been set at £1m.

North Carolina's Department of Insurance made the connection after the dead woman's mum, Suzie Robinson, alerted them to a potential insurance fraud.

Robinson alleged that her ex-son-in-law wanted to kill her daughter over a relationship he had started during the marriage.

Hunsucker was awarded a £200,000 life insurance payout after his wife's death, according to local media.
