An attorney for the wife of a poisoned lottery winner says she was questioned extensively by Chicago police, and her home was searched.

Urooj Khan died suddenly after winning a million dollar lotto prize in July.

The medical examiner’s office reclassified his death as a homicide last month, when it was determined Khan died from a lethal dose of cyanide.

The medical examiner is now seeking court approval to exhume his body for an autopsy.

No charges have been filed in his death.
