A bizarre murder has taken place recently. An odd combination of antifreeze and opiates killed a Las Vegas woman whose death was initially deemed a suicide.
LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — A former psychologist accused of killing his wife with antifreeze and opioids agreed Tuesday to a lesser charge of voluntary manslaughter.
Dr. Gregory “Brent” Dennis, 59, had faced homicide charges in a legal battle spanning years since his wife’s 2015 death. He entered an Alford plea on Tuesday, admitting that prosecutors had enough evidence to convict him in the case, but admitting no guilt.
He agreed to serve 3-10 years in prison.
When Susan Winters, an attorney, died in Jan. 2015, there was enough antifreeze in her system to kill her twice over, officials said.
After the 8 News Now I-Team ran several stories on Winters’ death, Henderson police reopened its examination of the case.
Winters had a lethal amount of oxycodone in her system and a deadly dose of a chemical from antifreeze. Alone, either one would have killed her.
The death was originally ruled a suicide, but that changed after the Winters family hired its own private investigators.
