A man has been sentenced to 2 months in jail after a secret camera set up by his suspicious wife caught him poisoning her coffee every time.
Therese Kozlowski, who has been married to Brian for 22 years, noticed she became ill every time her husband makes her coffee. This made her suspicious so she set up cameras in their home in Macomb Township, Michigan.
When she looked through the footage, she saw her husband putting what turned out to be antihistamine into the beverage. He started poisoning her in 2018 while they were waiting for her divorce to come through.
Therese said that the drink left her feeling tired, sick and with blurred vision and believes that her husband was trying to kill her. She said on one occasion she almost fell asleep at the wheel of her car because of the drug he put in her coffee.
Speaking about the moment she saw her husband spiking her coffee, Therese said, according to Metro UK: “I felt a horrible coldness in the air, as if I was hunted by a dangerous predator, but in this nightmare, the predator was Brian.”
Brian Kozlowski’s lawyer said he had “profound remorse” and put his actions down to going through an “ugly divorce”.
Prosecutor Eric Smith said the 60-day sentence was a “slap in the face of the victim and the justice system in general”.
He said: “The Court seemed more focused on ensuring the defendant’s freedom and ability to continue to work than the victim and her safety.
“It is troubling to think that someone who commits such a reckless crime, putting his wife and so many other people at risk, is able to walk away with such a light sentence.
“We are all thankful this sneak attack didn’t cause the victim to fall asleep behind the wheel on her way to work, killing herself and/or innocent drivers.”
