WAUSAU, Wis. -- A Wisconsin woman was arrested for allegedly spiking her boss' coffee to make him forget about the money she owed him.
Karen Zenner, 56, was charged on Thursday with one felony count of putting foreign objects in food.
Zenner placed caffeine pills, water pills, anti-anxiety medication and eye drop solution in her boss’s coffee for about three weeks, according to court documents.
She told police she hoped the mixture would make him sick, so he could forget about the $2,000 he loaned her.
Her boss told investigators when she attempted to repay him, the check bounced.
On Jan. 13, her boss contacted police after he found five pills and a “slimy” substance in his bottom of his coffee cup, according to authorities.
He is a diabetic, and also noticed usually high spikes in his blood sugar during that time.
Zenner is free on bond. If convicted, she could face a maximum sentence of three and a half years in prison.
