Loving message while poisoning her
James Craig was arrested from Aurora, Colorado, on Sunday, March 19, and charged with the murder of his wife. He is accused of killing her by poisoning her protein shakes while having an affair with an orthodontist from Texas. Messages revealed by police in an arrest affidavit show the accused dentist sent his wife several loving messages, including telling her that he had written her a song, while he knew she was slowly being poisoned with potassium cyanide.
Some of the messages also show Angela complaining about how she feels dizzy and nauseous which the police say is because of the poison James put in her smoothies. In the seemingly loving messages between the couple as well as social media photographs, Angela can be seen showering her husband with kisses and loving words.
The couple started discussing her strange symptoms via text on March 6, just a day after she returned from a short trip to visit her sister in Utah where she was perfectly healthy.
Messages obtained by the police show Craig thanking her for making his drink before he admits to giving her too many B vitamins in her protein shake. The pair continue to chat about her feeling unwell with Craig insisting that he will 'come home' from the surgery to care for his sick wife.
James was with his mistress while Angela was hospitalized
The mother-of-six was admitted to Parker Adventist Hospital on March 9. While Angela's health deteriorated in the hospital and she was dealing with doctors, Craig flew his mistress over from Texas while simultaneously messaging his wife to say he wished he could stay longer at the hospital with her. Angela was ultimately discharged on March 14 before she died the next day.
Craig was addicted to porn since his teenage days
When speaking to the police, Angela's sister said that Craig had multiple affairs with several women and that he had been addicted to porn since he was a teenager. Angela also complained to her sister that, during a recent trip to Las Vegas, Craig had gambled away over $2,000 despite the family's financial struggles.
