GENEVA, Ill. (AP) - A judge ordered a suburban Chicago woman held without bond in the poisoning death of her husband after prosecutors said she tried to kill him before.

Julia L. Gutierrez of Geneva is charged with first-degree murder in the death of 53-year-old Eduardo Gutierrez of Geneva.

During a hearing Wednesday before Kane County Judge Robert Morrow, Assistant State’s Attorney Greg Sams said that in 2002, Gutierrez put up to 10 capsules of the sedative temazepam, plus herbal sleeping remedies, in shakes she and her husband consumed.

Assistant Public Defender Julie Yetter told the judge no charges were brought because the 53-year-old Gutierrez underwent psychiatric treatment.

Prosecutors say that between Jan. 26 and Jan. 28, Gutierrez mixed temazepam into a drink and gave it to her husband, killing him.
