Elizabeth Fox-Doerr, 50, allegedly shot and killed her firefighter Robert Doer in the driveway of her home after a shift in 2019

An Indiana widow is facing murder charges after she allegedly killed her firefighter husband in her driveway three years ago.

Elizabeth Fox-Doerr, 50, is believed to have executed husband Robert Doerr after he returned home from a 12-hour shift in February 2019.

She was charged with perjury only this week but faces charges of murder.

She has been in jail since last month after originally being charged with perjury for lying about deleting cellphone records involving her “lover”.

The lover who was an alleged accomplice in the murder was 41-year-old Larry Ali Richmond Sr. of Evansville. He has been in prison for gun offenses since 2019.

Richmond was dating Fox-Doerr when Robert, who was an Evansville firefighter for almost 30 years, was murdered.

“This senseless, selfish act will leave Robby’s family, friends and colleagues forever,” Evansville Police Chief Billy Bolin said at a news conference Thursday. “Today is the first step in seeing some kind of justice for Robbie.”

Evansville Fire Chief Mike Larson said the charges mean the community finally has “closure” about Doerr’s loss.

“The citizens of Evansville have lost a firefighter who always went above and beyond the call of duty to save lives and property.

“More importantly, he was a son, a brother, a father and a grandfather,” Larson said at a news conference.

“We are relieved that the long wait is over and those involved in this murder will be brought to justice not only for Robby’s murder but for the pain they have caused his family, friends and our department,” he said Chief Larson away.

The sudden movement in the case and Fox-Doerr’s arrest came after Richmond allegedly made a confession to a fellow inmate also in prison.

Richmond confessed to the murder in prison, adding that he had a relationship with Elizabeth Fox-Doerr.

Fox-Doerr is also said to have called Richmond to speak to him on the phone about five minutes before the murder.

There was no record of any such call on her cell phone, after she deleted the call recording from her phone because she didn’t want investigators to think she was having an affair.

Fox-Doerr is being held on $50,000 bail on the perjury charge.
