West Springfield issues order to stop using drinking water Guest Commentary – Days Of Nor-Tech Thunder

A Missouri woman is behind bars because, according to police, she mixed the weed killer Roundup into her husband’s Mountain Dew soda bottles and thereby accused him, among other things, of not sufficiently appreciating the party she threw for his birthday.

Michelle Peters, 47, of Lebanon, Missouri, is being held without bail on charges of first-degree domestic violence and armed criminal action, according to KYTV-TV.

β€œIt’s a different kind of domestic violence,” said Laclede County Sheriff David Millsap.

Peters’ husband said, according to the New York Post, that starting on May 1, he noticed that the Diet Mountain Dew he was drinking in two-liter bottles in the garage refrigerator “tasted strange,” police said.

He ignored the strange taste, but a few weeks later he developed a sore throat, nausea, diarrhea and vomiting.

At one point, he became suspicious and checked the security camera footage in the garage. He told police he saw his wife bring his Mountain Dew and weed killer into the house and return with them moments later. He also showed the video to police.

The husband, whose name was not released by police, told Peters he felt ill. She told him he told her he “probably had COVID” and to “stay away from the grandchildren,” an affidavit states.

Peters’ husband wondered if her behavior had something to do with an affair or his $500,000 life insurance policy, and claimed she had reduced the amount she had transferred from a business account to her personal account.

Peters initially said she mixed the soda and Roundup in a cup to use as a weed killer, saying the idea came to her on Pinterest, an affidavit states.

The affidavit states that police told her that no cup was ever seen on any videos of her.

In addition, there were several bottles of Mountain Dew laced with Roundup in the refrigerator, the affidavit states.

According to a report in People magazine, Michelle told police that she should have just divorced him. She also told police that her husband was “selfish and they had relationship problems.”

“Michelle said she was angry at (her husband) because she threw a party for his 50th birthday and he didn’t appreciate it,” the affidavit states. Referring to an incident in late June, she admitted to mixing insecticide into her husband’s Mountain Dew.

“Michelle said she believed the chemical in the basement was Roundup when she put it in the Mountain Dew bottle and she did this to be ‘mean,'” the affidavit states.

“The investigation will reveal more about the totality of all the circumstances in court. Is there more to the story? Yes, there is. All of that will come to light in court,” Milsap said, according to KYTV.
