(Scroll down for video) A woman was arrested on charges of attempted murder after allegedly trying to poison her two young children by adding drugs to their drinks, police in Illinois said.
Schiller Park Police said that 29-year-old Krystle El Khatib, was arrested after trying to kill her children with poisoned apple juice because she was angry with their father.
El Khatib crushed anti-anxiety medication and added it into her kids’ apple juice. She then forced her 9-year-old son and her 4-year-old daughter to drink two full glasses.
She threatened to beat her son if he did not drink the apple juice. After her children drank the apple juice, El Khatib attempted to commit suicide by drinking several cups of the poisoned juice.
However, the boy woke up the following morning and called his father to complain that he was vomiting. The children were taken to a nearby hospital, where they were treated and released to the custody of their father.
El Khatib told investigators that since she brought her children into this world, she can take them out whenever she wants.
