Woman charged in alleged antifreeze poisoning
CNN |
"Maryann Neabor, 53, turned herself in early Sunday at a diner parking lot, accompanied by her lawyer... Police accused Neabor of poisoning her brother-in-law with a drink she concocted that included pineapple juice, maraschino cherries and antifreeze. The victim, Jonathan Neabor, had been visiting his brother and sister-in-law at their home last week. Police said he spent the night there after drinking the tainted beverage, becoming nauseated and dizzy. He was taken to a hospital and died Friday, police said. Maryann Neabor, an emergency medical technician, was at the hospital while her brother-in-law was being treated. Tests revealed that Jonathan Neabor had ingested ethylene glycol, the sweet, odorless chemical used as antifreeze." [Why hasn't the antifreeze industry spiked their product with bitterant? Oh, right: that would add pennies to the unit cost.]
