Family Poisoned

Wisconsin teen accused of putting mouse poison into family's food

A Wisconsin teen-ager is accused of putting mouse poison in his family's food for five weeks before his stepfather discovered the pellets in some coffee grounds. The 15-year-old is charged with three counts of attempted first-degree intentional homicide. A judge set bail at 25-thousand dollars. According to a criminal complaint, the boy admitted putting the poison in juice, milk, spaghetti, coffee and meat. It says he told investigators he didn't want to kill his family, but wanted to make them sick because he was mad at them. The boy's mother, stepfather and the couple's three-year-old daughter experienced stomach pains, heartburn and vomiting. They're expected to fully recover.
