SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – A 40-year-old southwest Missouri woman is accused of trying to kill her husband by spiking his tea with a half bottle of Visine eye drops. Greene County deputies said the woman was jailed Thursday night on $100,000 bond on a first-degree assault charge.

That's probably the most half-assed murder attempt I've ever heard of. Surely she could have found something a little more lethal than eye drops? Bleach? Drain cleaner? White spirit? Turps? Lighter fluid? She sucks.

It's clear that her blinking judgment was blurred since her attempt was so short sighted. Give her 30 lashes.

It sure would have been better if she had just filed for divorce. At least she'd not spend most of her life in jail.

Eyed bet she'll see some jail time.

Or maybe she's married to this guy and trying to help him get the red out. http://livenews.com.au/Articles/2009...ye_and_eats_it
