CHICAGO – Police investigating the cyanide death of an Indian-born lottery winner in the U.S. questioned his wife for more than four hours and executed a search warrant on their home but have not said whether she is considered a possible suspect in the poisoning.

Shabana Ansari’s attorney said Wednesday that the wife was questioned at a Chicago police station in November and detectives searched the family’s home. Attorney Steven Kozicki said Ansari maintains she had nothing to do with the July death of her 46-year-old husband, Urooj Khan.

“In any case where a husband dies in that manner, sure they’re going to talk to the spouse,” Kozicki said. “That’s what they’ve done. … I believe that she had nothing to do with his death. She vehemently says that she had nothing to do with his death.”

Khan died just days before he was to collect $425,000 in lottery winnings.
