Murder accusations against Brenda Kay Parker McCutcheon
In November of 2018, Brenda Kay Parker McCutcheon was arrested on murder charges for the death of Dr. Frank McCutcheon. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. McCutcheon operated in Ashville. After meeting and falling in love as residents, they tied the knot and stayed together for the next 32 years. Brenda gave up her nursing job to fully support Frank’s rapid rise to prominence as a cosmetic surgeon. Frank’s body was discovered in the front room of their Tree Top Roadhouse in Arden, California, at about 3:30 on the morning of July 16, 2016. At the time, he was 64 years old. Brenda McCutcheon claims he was sleeping on the sofa in the downstairs room because he enjoyed watching television late at night. After hearing something that she believed to be thunder and smelling gunpowder as she made her way downstairs, she dialled the emergency number 911 at 3:30 in the morning.
According to reports from 2016, Brenda McCutcheon denied to cops that she had shot her husband or hidden the gun that was later found hidden in the ivy outside their house.

A court order was issued against them some days before he passed away. As the firm’s financial chief, she felt threatened and chose to move the company, making her the prime suspect.
