BOISE, Idaho (AP) - A woman accused of poisoning a fellow inmate’s coffee has been arrested after a warrant for her arrest was issued more than a year ago.

KTVB-TV (https://bit.ly/1Vei7jD ) reports that 41-year-old Rocio Contreras-Loya was charged with a felony after law enforcement officials said she put cleaning solution into an inmate’s coffee in 2014 while in the Ada County Jail. Two women drank the coffee before realizing it was tainted.

Investigators say the cleaning solution is used to mop jail floors.

The women were able to return to their dorm after receiving medical treatment.

Contreras-Loya was released from jail after a warrant was issued in 2015. However, she was arrested Wednesday in Vale, Oregon and returned to Ada County Jail on a $10,000 bond.

A preliminary hearing was set for June 2.
