A 12-year-old Colorado girl has been arrested after allegedly trying to poison her mother twice just because her mother seized her iPhone.
Police said her mother noticed a bleach smell in her finished smoothie and soon fell sick.
But authorities said when the sickness passed and she noticed the same smell coming from a jug of water in her room, she confronted her daughter – who told her she was trying to kill the woman for confiscating her iPhone
The girl is now being held at the Juvenile Center on two charges of attempted first-degree murder.
A neighbour, Luciana Cordova, said:
‘It seems a little bit of an outrageous reaction to having your phone taken away, but I think it’s also reflecting of how our teens and our kids are so dependent on that, that they’d be willing to those extremes.’
