Personal life

Kelly Ryan being arrested

She was married to Bodybuilder Craig Titus. In prison she filed for divorce, which became final in December 2009.

On December 14, 2005 the burnt corpse of Melissa James, a woman who was in a sexual relationship with Titus and lived in Ryan and Titus' home, was discovered inside a Jaguar car belonging to Kelly Ryan. The couple went into hiding together and were arrested along with suspected accomplice, Anthony Gross, after a nine-day investigation.

A Nevada prosecutor alleged in open court that Titus was part of a plot to murder three witnesses due to testify in the case. No charges were filed and Titus’ defense lawyer said he didn't think that there was enough evidence for charges in the allegation.

While awaiting trial, in April 2006, Ryan lost her mother to a heart attack said to have been precipitated by stress.

The trial of co-defendant Anthony Gross on arson and accessory to murder charges was separated from the murder trial for Titus and Ryan.

On May 31, 2008, rather than going through a trial, Ryan and Titus pleaded guilty to reduced charges. Ryan plead guilty to one count of arson, entering an Alford plea to one count of battery with a deadly weapon resulting in significant bodily harm. She was sentenced to two consecutive terms of 3–13 years in prison.

On December 23, 2011, the Nevada Parole Board granted Ryan parole on the assault charges. She remained incarcerated to begin serving time for the arson charge. On September 2, 2014, Ryan was denied parole on the second charge. She will be eligible for parole again in October, 2017. Ryan is currently incarcerated at the Florence McClure Women's Correctional Center in Nevada.
