Murder defendant Ryan’s mom dies

A new twist in the murder case involving pro bodybuilders Craig Titus and Kelly Ryan: Ryan’s mother died over the weekend, reportedly from “a broken heart.”

Niki Ryan, 61, died of a heart attack Saturday while showing her home in Laguna Niguel, Calif., to a real estate agent.

A cardiac tech at a sports and wellness center, she had been going back and forth to Las Vegas trying to sell Titus and Ryan’s home to help pay legal fees.

“She was very stressed to say the least,” her friend and former co-worker Marni Cota said in an e-mail. “She died of a broken heart.”

Titus and Kelly Ryan have been charged in the December death of their live-in assistant, Melissa James, whose burned body was found in the couple’s Jaguar.

They were denied bail last week and remain in jail.

Titus was a Mr. Olympia contender and a 1996 bodybuilding champion. Ryan is a past Fitness America and Fitness International winner.
