A fugitive doctor charged in the cyanide poisoning death of his wife was arrested in Cyprus and will be brought back to the United States to face trial, the FBI said Monday.


Essa disappeared three weeks after his wife, Rosemarie, collapsed in her car about five miles from the couple’s home and died Feb. 24, 2005.

Before she collapsed, she called a friend on a cell phone, gasping for air, and said her husband made her take calcium pills and she didn’t feel well, prosecutors said.

Prosecutors have said they believe Essa, an emergency room doctor, was having an affair with a nurse and wanted to be free of his 38-year-old wife. Prosecutors characterized the killing as a “divorce substitute.”

A “divorce substitute“? Dang. This was some cruel, cruel shit, and this guy was a doctor, too. Whatever happened to the Hippocratic Oath?
