Michigan Man Gets Probation for Poisoning Wife’s Coffee [VIDEO]
When a Macomb County woman suspected something was wrong, she set up a video camera to see what was going wrong. She discovered that her-soon-to-be ex-husband was spiking her coffee with diphenhydramine, the main ingredient in antihistamines including Benadryl.
Brian Kozlowski's wife had filed for divorce about two months prior to the incident in July of 2018.
After Mrs. Kozlowski saw the video, she contacted her divorce attorney. The coffee she was served was analyzed and found to contain 127 milliliters of diphenhydramine, according to WJBK.
Kozlowski was sentenced to probation. Macomb County Prosecutor Eric Smith finds that sentence to be extremely lenient.
"This defendant's actions were despicable. We are all thankful this sneak attack didn't cause the victim to fall asleep behind the wheel on her way to work killing herself and/or innocent drivers," Prosecutor Smith said. "This defendant deserves nothing less than a prison cell for his actions and that is what we will be stressing to Judge (Anthony) Viviano Thursday morning or we will be appealing the sentence, plain and simple."
