A onetime Mayo Clinic physician with a troubled marriage fatally poisoned his wife and soon afterward told a woman that he was expecting a huge life insurance payout, according to a criminal complaint.

Connor F. Bowman, 30, of Rochester, was arrested Friday and charged Monday in Olmsted County District Court with second-degree intentional murder in connection with the death of 32-year-old Betty Jo Bowman on Aug. 20.

Bowman appeared in court Monday and remains jailed in lieu of $2 million bail ahead of a second court appearance on Nov. 1. His attorney, Michael Schatz, declined Tuesday to respond to the allegations leveled against his client.
