A married Maryland couple can breathe a second sigh of relief after surviving a cancer scare and cashing in a $1 million state lottery prize.

In Frederick County, a woman who survived cancer and her husband claimed a $1 million Maryland Lottery scratch-off prize - fresh on the heels of learning that the former had staved off the disease.

“She just survived cancer, so it’s a blessing!” the husband said.

During the wife’s treatment over the course of several recent weeks and months, the couple said that they played scratch-offs as a way to ease their minds during the difficult stretch.

While playing a $20 “Show Me $1,000,000!” scratcher, the couple were elated when the ticket delivered a seven-figure top prize, which they said would allow the wife to enter early retirement after battling cancer.

The couple chose not to disclose their names.

“We’ll be able to get her off her feet,” the 57-year-old husband said. The money will also go to settle a few bills, and most of it will end up in savings, they added. The Frederick County residents already had a post-treatment vacation scheduled, they added.

While the $1 million prize was a boon for the pair, they said that they don't have any formal plans for the cash, and that each day is a celebration in its own right after tackling cancer, though they plan to continue buying instant tickets.

“We basically celebrate every day when we get home from work – being alive and having a job,” he added.

The ticket, which was sold at Festival Major Liquors on Prospect Boulevard in Frederick, also net the business a $1,000 bonus from the Lottery for selling the top-prize winning scratcher.

Pedophile dies after drinking cloudy liquid as jury found him guilty of child sexual assault

A Texas man found guilty of child sexual abuse has died after drinking a cloudy liquid in court as his verdict was being read.

Edward Leclair, 57, drank the liquid Thursday while his verdict was read in the 16th District Court in Denton, Texas. Leclair picked up the bottle and started drinking from it as soon as he was found guilty of the first of five counts of child sexual assault against one victim in 2016.

Afterward, Leclair was taken to his holding cell in Denton County Jail, where bailiffs later found him gray in the face and unconscious. Leclair would briefly vomit while in his cell before being taken to Medical City Denton, where he was pronounced dead.

"It wasn't like he was just taking sips of water," First Assistant Attorney Jamie Beck from the Denton County District Attorney’s Office said, according to WFAA. "He was literally throwing it back, so to speak."

Leclair was arrested in 2018 on a $30,000 bond, which he paid soon after. Jury selection happened Monday at the Denton County Courts Building.


The Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office will perform an autopsy to find Leclair’s cause of death. Texas Rangers have taken the bottle into evidence for further investigation.
