12 Year Old Girl Charged with 2 Counts of First Degree Attempted Murder For Trying to Poison Her For Taking Away Her iPhone
ATTEMPTED MURDER FOE HAVING YOU IPHONE TAKEN AWAY?
A 12 year old girl in Colorado has been detained at the Boulder County Juvenile Center on two counts of attempted first-degree murder for attempting to poison her mother for having taken away her iPhone. According to police, the unnamed minor had poisoned her mother’s drink with bleach on two separate occasions. On March 6, the mother was sent to the Boulder Community Hospital when she contacted authorities to investigate. What kind of children are we raising that would even contemplate poisoning their parent because of being punished for having their iPhone taken away? Obviously, this pre-teen may need to have her freedom taken away as well.
A 12-year-old Colorado girl has been detained for allegedly trying to kill her mother twice by poisoning her drinks with bleach, after her mother took away her iPhone, police said.
The woman first felt sick on March 2, after drinking a smoothie, according to the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office. While she noticed the smell of bleach from her glass, the woman assumed her daughter hadn’t rinsed it properly, according to the sheriff’s office.
Then a few days later, the mother again recognized the smell of bleach coming from something she was going to drink and she confronted the pre-teen, the sheriff’s office said. The girl allegedly told her she wanted to kill her because she took away her iPhone, according to the sheriff’s office.
The girl had allegedly poured bleach into her mother’s water carafe, the sheriff’s office said.
