US wife accused of 'fatally poisoning husband with eyedrops'
Tehran (KNA) - A South Carolina woman has been charged with murder after allegedly poisoning her husband by putting eyedrops into his water for several days.
Lana Clayton, 52, was arrested weeks after her husband, Stephen Clayton, 64, was found dead at home.
She was detained when a toxicology test discovered a chemical called tetrahydrozoline in his body.
The substance is found in over-the-counter eyedrops and nasal sprays that are available without a prescription.
On Friday, York County police also charged her with unlawful malicious tampering of food between the dates of 19 and 21 July, when the alleged murder occurred.
