Ellicott City Woman to Stand Trial in Husband's Death

Woman is accused of killing her husband, a quadriplegic since 2007.

An Ellicott City woman will go to trial for the February 2011 death of her husband.

According to court records, Nancy Fleming Molony, 53, is charged with second-degree murder, manslaughter and reckless endangerment in the death of her husband, Kevin Patrick Molony

on the 4000 block of Chariots Flight Way in February of 2011.  A quadriplegic since a car collision in 2007, he was being cared for by family members and nurses, according to police. 

The initial examination of Kevin Molony did not determine how he died, according to police, but after further testing, his death was ruled a homicide.

Heaerings on pre-trial motions are scheduled for Thursday at 2 p.m. and Friday at 1:30 p.m., according to the Howard County State’s Attorney’s Office.

RIP Kevin. All my sympathies to Tim Mary Beth and the rest of the family.

If this was a mercy killing and he wanted to die, who are we to prosecute his wife when he asked her to. I wouldnt' blame him one bit for not wanting to live the rest of his life paralyzed.

If that was the case, Elizabeth, it should come out during trial. Until now, the case has been sealed, so we don't know much.

Look at the timeline. That is what took so long to make the charge. The investigation showed doubt as to the circumstances claimed. The story says "he was being cared for by family members and nurses, according to police." Since 2007. Every one of those involved in his care were extensively interviewed over the past 2 years. Many had the same thoughts as you but the witnesses disputed that theory.

Keeping the families in prayer.

NOT GUILTY ON ALL CHARGES! It is an all around tragedy, but the State did not present one shred of evidence that Nancy put the pills in his mouth. My faith in the justice system is restored (except for Eric Holder). In this land you must prove beyond a shadow of a doubt and the prosecutors did not come close. RIP Kevin. You were a great person and I hope God is holding you in his arms because you deserve it.

I was in the courtroom and without any fear of contradiction, the State did not present a case at all.
