Wife Admits Poisoning Husband With Weed Killer

Michelle Y. Peters was taken into custody on Monday and charged with one count of first-degree domestic assault and one count of armed criminal action, authorities announced. The 47-year-old woman in Missouri is facing multiple felonies after she was allegedly caught on video spiking her husband’s Mountain Dew with Round Up weed killer because he was “not appreciative” of the 50th birthday party she threw for him. When questioned, Peters initially denied putting Roundup in her husband’s Mountain Dew, claiming she was actually mixing the beverage and insecticide together to create a “weed killer that she saw on Pinterest.” However, when confronted with the video evidence and bottles her husband had gathered, she allegedly confessed and said she “should have just divorced (her husband).” “Michelle again admitted to putting the insecticide from the basement in the two-liter Mountain Dew bottle and placing it into the garage refrigerator during the evening of 6-23-2024. Michelle said she was mad at (her husband) because she had thrown him a 50th birthday party and he was not appreciative,” police said, per the affidavit.
