Nurse charged with murdering fiance takes plea deal

News

A New Mexico nurse originally charged with murdering her fiance will serve no time in prison. 

Kandi Adams was arrested for allegedly giving her fiance Richard Harris a fatal dose of Propofol in 2015, but trying to make it look like an accident. 

Authorities in Sierra County said there were a lot of red flags, including Adams’ 911 call to report Harris was having a medical episode. 

However, OMI determined Harris was dead long before she made that 911 call.

They later charged her with murder. 

KRQE News 13 has learned Adams has taken a plea deal in exchange for three years of supervised probation. 

She pleaded no contest to involuntary manslaughter.

Calls to prosecutors to find out whey they offered this deal have not been returned.
