A Jealous woman has poisoned her ex-boyfriend and his new fiancee just three days before their wedding.
Police have arrested a jealous woman for poisoning her ex-partner and his new fiancee with a tampered box of chocolates just three days before their wedding in Brazil.
It was gathered that Dione Quirino, 35, and Amanda Cassia Lopes, 27, received a delivery of chocolates at home in Jaiba in the Brazilian state of Minas Gerais on Thursday.
The couple, who were expected to tie the knot over the weekend, were said to have consumed the chocolates, thinking they were an early wedding gift,
Before discovering that they had ingested some kind of poison, a total of five people – the bride and groom-to-be, two other adults and one two-year-old – were hospitalized after falling sick.
Meanwhile, their family dog, also given a sweet or two as a treat, died as a result of poisoning by the chocolates which they believed was a wedding gift.
According to news site G1, the dog was the first to fall sick and later died from the as yet unidentified poison, while all five people were taken to hospital after experiencing severe sickness.
After interviewing the victims and other family members, the police arrested the groom’s ex-girlfriend as the main suspect, a day after the alleged poisoning incident on Friday.
According to their statements, the woman was never able to accept the end of the relationship or that her ex-boyfriend had found happiness with someone else.
Police said that authorities are reviewing a wealth of information including CCTV footage and camera phone footage, and are conducting analyses of the chocolates, the victims’ stool samples and the contents of the deceased dog’s digestive tract to determine the cause of its death.
Delegate Marconi Vieira has been named as the legal representation for the woman, who was arrested by police on Friday at her residence after a search.
