According to recent court documents, Kouri Richins, a 33-year-old Utah-based children's book author and mother of three, who stands accused of murdering her husband in the previous year, reportedly searched for "luxury prisons for the wealthy" on Google subsequent to his demise.
The prosecution alleges that on the evening of March 3, 2022, while their three young sons were asleep, Richins administered a lethal dose of fentanyl to her 39-year-old husband, Eric Richins, at their residence in Kamas, a town located just outside Park City.
Following the discovery of her husband's lifeless body, Richins made a statement to the police implying that his death was not natural, as the records indicate he did not merely "die in his sleep."
During her court appearance on Monday, Richins' request for bail was rejected.

Court records have unveiled fresh aspects of the case, indicating that investigators obtained access to Richins' mobile device and discovered multiple Google searches filled with typographical errors. The authorities view these searches as potential evidence that could be used to incriminate the suspect. However, Richins' defense team contests this interpretation.
Richins allegedly searched the following phrases in April 2022: "luxury prisons for the rich in america," "how long does life insrance companies takento.pay [sic];" "can you delete everythjng on an old icloud account [sic]," "can deleted text messages be retrieved," "what information can be cbtained from a cellphone [sic]," "how to turn find my iphone off [sic]," "can cops force you to do a lie detector test," "when does FBI get involved in a case," "what is considered a lethal.dose of fentanyl [sic]," and "what are you allowed inside utah jails."
The search history on Richins' Google account further reveals queries about her personal net worth, several searches related to ranch properties for sale in Tennessee and Montana, and inquiries regarding her late husband's family's connections with the law enforcement in Summit County, Utah.
Responding to the state's allegations, Skye Lazaro, Richins' defense attorney, submitted a counterstatement on Sunday. Lazaro argued that her client's search history merely reflects responses to the ongoing investigation and should not be construed as an indication of guilt as suggested by the State.
