DEPUTIES: Woman Tries To Poison Family Over Cheese Sharing Dispute

A woman is accused of using Ajax cleaner, window cleaner and detergent in attempt to poison five of her family members over a cheese sharing dispute.

Tiara Drake of Battleboro is charged with five counts of attempted first degree murder.

Nash County deputies say on Friday Drake asked a family member for some of her cheese. The victim said no, but there was another kind of cheese in the refrigerator that she could eat.

Apparently angry, deputies say the next day Drake poisoned the cheese and four relatives had it for breakfast. Poison control said they'd be okay after drinking plenty of milk.

The 24-year-old Drake is in jail on a $50,000 secured bond.
