A 17-year-old girl is facing murder charges after it was discovered that she poisoned her grandmother’s collard greens.
According to reports by the Fayetteville Observer, Tyt’ana Lisa-Nicole Johnson was upset after her 51-year-old grandmother took away her cellphone as a form of punishment. She believed the teen was on the phone too much and not aware of her surroundings.
Johnson’s grandmother would always make dinner before going to church. When the grandmother left for Easter service, Johnson poured insecticide and termite killer into her grandmother’s collard greens.
Johnson’s grandmother returned from church and began eating the collard greens with her friend while watching the NBA playoffs. But after eating the greens, they both were feeling nauseous and experiencing numbness in their fingers. They rushed to the hospital and were treated for food poisoning.
The teen eventually admitted to poisoning the food and was arrested. She was charged with two counts of attempted first-degree murder. Her bail was set at $500,000.
