Wisconsin Woman Accused Of Poisoning Friend With Eyedrops


Prosecutors say a Wisconsin woman killed her friend by poisoning her with eyedrops.

A criminal complaint says in 2018, 37-year-old Jessy Kurczewski called police to her friend's home, saying her friend wasn't breathing.

A deputy found the unnamed woman with crushed medication on her chest, but toxicology tests showed she had a fatal dose of tetrahydrozoline, the main ingredient in eyedrops, in her system.

Kurczewski said the woman was suicidal and later told investigators she brought her friend water with six bottles' worth of Visine in it.

Besides the accusation of murder, detectives also allege Kurczewski transferred thousands of dollars from the victim to her own account.
