FORT WAYNE — A 19-year-old Fort Wayne woman has pleaded guilty to charges she tried to poison her 11-week-old niece by crushing Excedrin tablets and putting the powder into a bottle of breast milk.
Sarai Rodriguez-Miranda pleaded guilty Monday morning to attempted murder. The (Fort Wayne) Journal Gazette reports Rodriguez-Miranda was angry that her mother was allowing her brother, his fiance and the baby girl to live with them and stay longer than expected.
Rodriguez-Miranda’s mother saw text messages about her daughter’s plan.
Rodriguez-Miranda’s mother pulled the bottles.
Court documents show that one bottle had a greenish circle and was a different color than an untainted bottle. The baby was taken to a hospital to see if she was poisoned and she wasn’t.
Rodriguez-Miranda is to be sentenced May 18.
