Warrant: Woman puts chemical cocktail in family’s sweet tea
WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — The suspect in an attempted poisoning case appeared in court for the first time on Wednesday.
McNair is charged with two counts of attempted murder and two counts of contaminate food/drink with a controlled substance after Wilmington Police say she was caught on camera putting toxic chemicals, Lysol, Resolve Carpet Cleaner and paint primer in a sweet tea bottle belonging to her stepson.
Prosecutors said what McNair did was the definition of premeditated and deliberate, telling the judge they believed she was a danger to the community.
McNair responded to the comment, saying “you don’t even know if I did it yet.”
An attorney was present for the appearance, letting McNair know he would arrive at the jail to answer any questions she may have.
The judge assigned McNair a public defender, but she may end up with a private attorney.
The judge gave McNair a $300,000 secured bond and is set to appear in court again on August 27.
