Her husband Alfred Ruf reportedly "admitted to giving Bishop an unknown substance knowing it would eventually kill her." Bishop went to the hospital several times last year and believed it was a consequence of the poison.
Wayne County Sheriff’s Department officials collected samples of the substance and are examining it. They are reportedly looking for two other people they believe could be connected to this case.
Deputies arrested Ruf on a charge of conspiracy to commit murder. He was booked into the Wayne County Jail on Jan. 3 and, according to records, was released on Jan. 5.
