LINCOLN -- Caril Ann Fugate Clair, who went with Charles Starkweather on a 1958 killing spree, remains in critical but stable condition, authorities said Wednesday.
The 70-year-old Fugate Clair has been hospitalized in Kalamazoo, Mich., since a single-vehicle crash Monday night that killed her husband, Frederick Clair, 81, the Calhoun County Sheriff's Office said.
She was 14 and a Lincoln resident in January 1958 when her boyfriend, Starkweather, began the string of murders that terrorized Nebraskans. Ten people were killed over the space of a few days.
Authorities later learned that Starkweather had also killed Lincoln gas station attendant Robert Colvert, after a robbery and abduction in late 1957.
Starkweather was executed.
Fugate Clair served 18 years in prison. After being paroled, she moved to Michigan, where she worked in a hospital for three decades.
She married about six years ago and has been living in Ohio.
