A mother nearly lost her life, after her son wickedly added bleach to a one-liter carton of iced coffee in the refrigerator, she unknowingly drank the poisoned coffee.
The woman was hospitalized for one week. Police in Tokyo’s Itabashi Ward said Friday they have arrested the 14-year-old boy on suspicion of attempted murder.
Police said the boy told them he took the carton out of the fridge and put it back in after he added two kinds of bleach.
The boy, who lives with his mother and stepfather, was quoted by police as saying he wanted to kill his mother because he did not like her personality after she kept berating him over one time when he shoplifted something.
