A lawsuit against a Utah woman who wrote a children’s book about grief after her husband’s death and now stands charged with his murder is seeking over $13 million in damages. The lawsuit was filed Tuesday against Kouri Richins in state court in connection with the 2022 death of her husband, Eric Richins. In the lawsuit, the sister of the woman’s late husband accuses her of taking money from the man’s bank accounts, diverting money intended to pay his taxes and obtaining a fradulent loan before allegedly killing him in 2022. An email message sent to Kouri Richins’ attorney seeking comment on the lawsuit was not immediately returned Wednesday.
