"Before shooting his wife to death, Richard Kirk asked her to kill him.
After the Denver father of three allegedly murdered Kristine Kirk, he asked their 7-year-old son to do it, saying it would allow “Mom and Dad to be together with God.”
The fatal shooting came at the end of a 12-minute phone call between Kristine Kirk and police, one in which she told a dispatcher that her husband of 15 years was “totally hallucinating.” Hours earlier, the 49-year-old man had consumed half a small marijuana edible called “Karma Kandy Orange Ginger,” which he purchased at Nutritional Elements, a dispensary nearby.
In the two years since the April 2014 shooting, Kirk has pled not guilty by reason of insanity after saying the marijuana candy made him psychotic. Surprisingly, his wife’s family agrees with her alleged killer and is suing edible’s seller and maker for failing to put adequate warnings on the candy. Both Kirk’s plea and their lawsuit suggest that his consumption of the edible is what led to Kristine’s death and that, had the warnings been clearer, she’d still be alive.”*
