A lady from Arizona is accused of attempting to poison her husband’s coffee in an effort to murder him. According to court records, Melody Feliciano Johnson’s Air Force husband was suspicious of his wife and would not consume the coffee she had been making for him.
While residing in Germany, the couple, who share a kid, were going through a divorce. The spouse, whose name was withheld from publication in the police report, observed that the morning coffee his wife had made for him started tasting foul. He claimed to be the only person who uses the coffee maker, according to the police.
When testing his tap water and the water in his coffee, he claimed to have purchased pool chlorine testing strips. He discovered that although the faucet water was normal, the coffee had excessive amounts of chlorine.
While they were in Germany, he stopped drinking the coffee but didn’t immediately tell his wife. Instead, he made the decision to install cameras in their new house on Davis Mountain Air Force Base when they relocated to Arizona on June 28.
According to court records, he captured Johnson pouring something into the water reservoir on tape. He reported the incident to the Tuscon Police Department, but there was no follow-up. As a result, he purchased more cameras and installed one in the laundry area where the bleach was stored.
A video purportedly captured his wife going from the laundry area to the coffee maker. Her reportedly putting bleach into a smaller bottle and carrying it over to the coffee machine was shown on another video.
After the spouse gathered many tapes for his police report, Johnson was held at home by police. When police searched the house with a warrant, they discovered a bleach-smelling substance in the coffee machine. They also discovered a container that had a strong bleach scent.
Johnson is accused with attempting to commit first-degree murder, aggravated assault, and tampering with food, drink, or medication.
According to the records, a large bail was asked for Johnson last month because she may be a flight risk and has a home and relatives in the Philippines. According to AZ Family, she entered a not guilty plea during her hearing on Friday and her bond was set at $250,000.
