The Houston nurse once accused of killing her husband spoke out Wednesday about the “heartbreaking nightmare” of her wrongful accusation. 

Thu Thien Huynh, 29, was arrested for using a shotgun to murder her husband, Steven Hafer, and then calling 911 and reporting it as a suicide. But two months after filing murder charges, the Harris County District Attorney’s Office changed course and dismissed the case. 


DROPPED: Murder charged dropped against nurse accused of staging husband’s suicide 

“I wish law enforcement had prioritized the finding of facts instead of an easy target to demonize,” Huynh told reporters in a press conference at her attorney’s office. “I wish the media took seriously the task of educating the public instead of reporting scandalous rumors and half-truths for shock value. From the very beginning, I was attacked left and right.”

After decrying the media and the police, Huynh reiterated her innocence. 

“I want the record to be absolutely clear I do not know specifically what drove Steven to do what he did,” she said. “But I pray that he’s now in peace. I did not kill him. I did not shoot my husband.”

Her lawyer, David Armbruster, did not rule out the possibility of pursuing a civil action, though he did not shed light on what specific details of the medical examiner’s findings prompted prosecutors to drop the case. 

“It was an absolute lack of evidence,” he said. “In my opinion, I think law enforcement jumped to conclusions.”
