BEATRICE, Neb. (AP) - A Minnesota woman who admitted pouring carpet cleaner in the ice tea of her boyfriend’s mother has been sent to jail in Nebraska.

Online court records say 26-year-old Amanda Nelson, of Worthington, Minnesota, was sentenced Wednesday in Gage County District Court. She’d pleaded guilty to felony assault.

Nelson told Beatrice police that she wanted to kill the woman after arguing with her the previous evening last June. Court documents say the intended victim told officers her tongue went numb and that she vomited after taking a drink of the poisoned tea.
