Monroe, Wisconsin, woman Amanda Chapin has been charged with attempted homicide after allegedly poisoning her 70-year-old husband, Gary Chapin, with animal euthanasia drugs three times between July and August.
According to the police, Amanda, who married Gary in March, also forged the signature of one of her husband’s children on a power-of-attorney document and demanded that he change the house deed in her favor.
Blood tests reportedly showed that the drugs used to euthanize animals were present in Gary’s system.
In addition to the attempted homicide charge, Amanda is also accused of violating a restraining order that Gary’s son filed on his behalf.
Amanda’s husband has since filed for divorce.
Amanda’s attorney, Adam Witt, has stated that his client denies the allegations and will assert her constitutional rights to due process.
