The widow of a $1 million Indian-American lottery winner, who died of cyanide poisoning, has been questioned extensively by Chicago police after her husband's death was reclassified as a homicide, her attorney said.
Urooj Khan, 46, owned a dry-cleaning business in Chicago and had won a million dollars in an Illinois lottery scratch ticket in June last year. A month later, Khan died just a day after he received the cheque for his lottery win.
Authorities investigating Khan's death executed a search warrant at the home he had shared with his wife Shabana Ansari, according to her attorney Steven Kozicki.
Shabana, Khan's second wife, was later interviewed by detectives for more than four hours, answering all their questions, the Chicago Tribune quoted her attorney as saying.
He said his client adored her husband and had no financial interest in seeing harm come to him.
