http://www.cnn.com/2005/LAW/11/11/wife.poisoned.ap/index.html Police: Accused antifreeze killer wanted money for house, BMW Radio host allegedly spiked wife's Gatorade with antifreeze CAMBRIDGE, Massachusetts (AP) -- A journalist accused of poisoning his wife by spiking her Gatorade with antifreeze told a friend he planned to spend his life insurance money on a house and a BMW convertible, according to prosecutors. He also said he would start a foundation in his wife's name, the court documents said. James Keown pleaded not guilty Thursday and was ordered held without bail. Keown was arrested earlier this week during a commercial break at the radio station where he worked in Jefferson City, Missouri. He was charged with first-degree murder in the September 2004 death of 31-year-old Julie Keown. Prosecutors have said the couple was struggling financially after moving to the Boston area in early 2004. They believe James Keown killed his wife for her $250,000 life insurance policy. According to the documents, Keown told a close friend after his wife's funeral, "I am going to take Julie's insurance money, buy a BMW Z4 convertible, go back to Kansas City and build a house. With what money is left over, I am going to start a foundation in Julie's name and run it for a few years." Julie Keown died September 8, 2004, after complaining for months about dizziness, nausea and other symptoms. An autopsy found she'd been poisoned with ethylene glycol, a chemical found in antifreeze. About a month after the death, James Keown did move back to Missouri, where he had grown up, and got a job as a reporter and talk show host at radio station KLIK-AM. But he never collected the insurance money because her death came under investigation. Julie Keown's parents issued a statement Thursday saying their lives "were forever changed by this horrible, evil, and senseless act." "There are no words to describe the sadness we feel. We are tormented daily by the why of it all," said Jack and Nancy Oldag, who attended Keown's arraignment in Middlesex District Court. Defense attorney J.W. Carney Jr. said he believed the case against the 31-year-old was "suspect" because more than a year passed between Julie Keown's death and her husband's indictment. James and Julie Keown moved to the Boston area in early 2004 after he lied to his wife, telling her he'd been accepted to Harvard Business School, according to prosecutors. Instead, he took one class at the university's continuing education program, which he flunked.
