Police in Colorado, were called to the hospital after a mother was poisoned by her daughter twice.

The 12-year-old girl was arrested for attempted first-degree murder after she tried to kill her mother by spiking her drinks with bleach, according to the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office.

The girl allegedly admitted that she wanted to kill her mother because she took away her iPhone.

The girl’s first attempt to poison her mother occurred when she poured chlorine in her mother’s smoothie. The mother told authorities that she smelled chlorine bleach in her drink, but she thought it was caused by the glass that has not been rinsed properly.

The victim became sick after drinking the smoothie, but she did not seek medical attention.

The second attempt occurred when the daughter poured bleach into a pitcher of water, which was in her mother’s room.

On the second occasion, when the woman noticed the smell of bleach again in her water, she confronted her daughter.

That’s when she learned that her daughter is trying to kill her for taking away her iPhone, authorities said.

The mother went to the hospital, where she was examined by a doctor, but she was not admitted. Police were called, leading to the arrest of the 12-year-old girl.
