The widow of a firefighter who was simply executed in their own driveway 3 years ago was charged with murder in his death on Thursday, the Evansville Police Department announced.
Elizabeth Fox-Doerr, 50, has been around jail since July on a charge of perjury and was hit with the murder charge this week.
Another man who is definitely a suspect in the event, 41-year-old Evansville resident Larry Ali Richmond Sr., was also charged with murder. He’s experienced jail since 2019 on federal gun charges.

Robert Doerr, who was a firefighter for pretty much 30 years in Evansville, Indiana, was shot 3 x and killed after coming home from the 12-hour shift on Feb. 26, 2019.
“This senseless selfish act will forever leave a void of Robbys family, his friends and his co-workers,” Evansville Police Chief Billy Bolin said at a press conference Thursday. “Today may be the first rung on the ladder in seeing some form of justice for Robbie.”
Evansville Police Department Officer Blake Keen said in 2020 that Richmond “had a relationship with the Doerr family at that time Robert was executed.”
An inmate who was simply locked up with Richmond told police that the suspect confessed to the murder in jail and in addition said he was in a relationship with Elizabeth Fox-Doerr, in accordance with an affidavit obtained by WEHT.

Fox-Doerr also allegedly called Richmond and talked to him on his phone for 5 minutes right before the murder, but she later deleted records of the decision from her phone because she didn’t want investigators to believe she was having an affair with Richmond, the affidavit said.
Evansville Fire Department Chief Mike Larson said Thursday that the city finally has “some closure” for the increased loss of Doerr.
“The citizens of Evansville lost a firefighter who always went far beyond the decision of duty to save lots of lives and property,” Larson said at a press conference. “A lot more importantly, he was a son, a brother, a father and grandfather.”
Fox-Doerr happens to be being held on a $50,000 bond for the perjury charge. It wasn’t immediately clear if she or Richmond had attorneys who could speak with the person.
