ALBEMARLE, NC (AP) — Authorities say two North Carolina high school cafeteria employees have been arrested and accused of trying to poison their boss’s tea.
The Stanly County Sheriff’s Office says 38-year-old Angela Johnson and 64-year-old Eileen Hallamore were charged Tuesday with distributing food containing poison.
Authorities say their investigation started last month after the county board of education reported a poisoning attempt at South Stanly High School in Norwood.
No students were involved. Deputies have not said how the poisoning was discovered or what may have motivated the women.
It was not clear if the women have attorneys. They are due in court April 25.
