NC woman tried to spike fiance’s soda with eye drops, police say

first_imgRowan County Sheriff’s Office(SALISBURY, N.C.) — A woman in North Carolina looked to the movies for inspiration as she tried to poison her fiance with eye drops, authorities said. Jaymee Lynn Cruz, of Salisbury, about 40 miles northeast of Charlotte, was arrested on Saturday after her fiance noticed her putting eye drops in his soda, according to the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office.Cruz told deputies she got the idea to spike his drink from watching the movie Wedding Crashers. There’s a scene in the 2005 film where John, the character played by Owen Wilson, puts eye drops in the drink of his rival, Sack Lodge, played by Bradley Cooper. The “prank” makes him violently ill, though the intention was not death. She told deputies she only planned to make her fiance sick, as well. Upon seeing his fiancee spike his drink, he took the couple’s child and hid in the bathroom and called 911, according to authorities.The couple was arguing over the custody of their child, and she wanted to move out of the home with her daughter, deputies said. She has been charged with distributing noxious or deleterious food, a class H felony in North Carolina, and punishable by up to 25 months in jail.The eye-drop method of poisoning has been used before. Lana Clayton, a woman in South Carolina, admitted to killing her husband by putting eye drops in his drinks over the course of several days in July 2018, according to the York County Sheriff’s Office. She was charged with murder and granted a public defender in October, despite previously owning a million-dollar estate, and is still awaiting trial, according to the Rock Hill, South Carolina, Herald. Tetrahydrozoline, the chemical found in eye drops, constricts blood vessels and can cause difficulty breathing, slowed heartbeat and the possibility of slipping into a coma if consumed in larger-than-directed quantities.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Dozens rescued in Louisiana after Barry causes thousands of power outages across the state

first_imgABC News(BATON ROUGE, La.) — Residents of Louisiana felt the full brunt of Tropical Storm Barry’s rainfall overnight as they woke to find localized flooding and tens of thousands without power across the state.First responders rescued 93 people from 11 parishes as a result of the storm, Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards said in a news conference Sunday afternoon. Thirteen of those people and two pets were rescued by the U.S. Coast Guard.There were no reports of weather-related fatalities, Edwards said.Rain was expected throughout Sunday, especially in Louisiana, even as nearly 7 inches of rain had fallen in Montrose, Alabama, and just over 6 inches fell in Ocean Springs, Mississippi, through the first day of the storm.Edwards advised Louisiana residents to continue to remain vigilant as several inches of rain were still expected through Sunday night, especially in southern Louisiana, which could lead to flash flooding, as well as tornado watches in nine parishes until 7 p.m. local time.The hurricane protection systems in southern Louisiana functioned well, even though the storm surge that was originally anticipated did not occur. However, Edwards said he was “grateful” that the “worst-case scenario” in rain and flooding did not occur.President Trump tweeted his support to the residents of Louisiana and the surrounding areas Sunday morning.“A big risk of major flooding in large parts of Louisiana and all across the Gulf Coast,” he wrote. “Please be very careful!”There were over 152,000 customers without power in the state as of 5 a.m. on Sunday. That’s an increase of about 30,000 customers from Saturday afternoon.Barry made landfall as a very weak Category 1 hurricane on Saturday afternoon near Intercostal City, Louisiana. The last hurricane to make landfall in Louisiana was Nate in 2017.The levees have held in most prominent cities, but a levee was overtopped in Terrebonne Parish, on the coast southeast of New Orleans, where the Coast Guard rescued 12 people and two dogs by helicopter.“Every storm is different and sometimes we want to think we know what to expect from today’s storm based on what we’ve experienced in the past,” Edwards said. “And we continually learn that lesson, but every storm is different.”The storm is now moving over land, but it is not over. Life-threatening flash flooding and river flooding are still expected from Louisiana up through the lower Mississippi Valley through Monday.Rain bands will continue to intensify and expand on the eastern and southern Side of Barry on Sunday. Rainfall rates in these bands could exceed 3 inches per hour.Storm surge will remain a localized issue along the Louisiana coast until the storm weakens a little more, and the winds shift back offshore.The most concerning aspect of this storm is the continued guidance showing not much movement over the next 48 hours.On Monday morning, heavy rain will continue to push into parts of Arkansas as Barry — or what remains of it — barely moves northward. However, more tropical rain will push into parts of southern Louisiana from Lake Charles to Baton Rouge with rainfall rates still exceeding 3 inches per hour in spots.Over a foot of rain is still expected in parts of the region, especially southern Louisiana, and some areas could quickly pick up 3 to 6 inches of rain in just a few hours during the day Sunday and on Monday morning.Early predictions for river crests are being lowered, but they will remain a concern heading into the work week.“Because of a change in the rain forecast, the crest predictions for many of the rivers have actually gone down,” Edwards said. “However I should point out, that even the revised crest heights qualify as major flooding and present serious threats to life and to property. I implore you to remain alert and aware.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more
