Jury Convicts Fox-Doerr of Murder, Conspiracy


Elizabeth Fox-Doerr was found guilty for the death of her firefighter husband, Robert Doerr

A jury has convicted a woman of killing her husband, a longtime Evansville firefighter. WNIN’s John Gibson has the update:

The jury deliberated about four hours before finding Elizabeth Fox-Doerr guilty of murder and conspiracy to commit murder Tuesday night.

She was convicted for the February 2019 killing of firefighter Robert Doerr II at their Evansville home.

Fox-Doerr’s attorney told media outlets that the verdict may be appealed.

Vanderburgh County Superior Court Judge Robert Pigman set a sentencing date of June 17th.

Fox-Doerr was accused of arranging for her lover, Larry Richmond Sr., to kill her husband.

The 46-year-old Richmond is scheduled to face trial in August.

The 51-year-old Doerr served on the Evansville Fire Department for 28 years.

For the first time under a new state law, cameras were allowed in the local courtroom.

WFIE provided pool coverage of the week-long proceedings.
