HOUSTON, Tx. -- A Houston cancer doctor has been found guilty of poisoning her colleague-turned-lover. Dr. Ana Maria Gonzalez-Angulo was accused of spiking Dr. George Blumenschein's coffee with a sweet-tasting chemical found in antifreeze.
Prosecutors told jurors that Gonzalez-Angulo had a sexual relationship with Bluemenschein, but things went all 'Fatal Attraction' when Bluemenschein ditched the affair with her, for his live-in girlfriend of ten years.
Blumenschein testified that he became sick in January 2013, not long after he had been intimate with Gonzalez-Angulo, and immediately suspected his lover of poisoning his drink.
He claims he now has only about 40% of his kidney function.
A bigger punch to the kidneys, though, is life in prison--a sentence that Dr. Gonzalez-Angulo could end up serving. Sentencing phase is continuing and will resume Monday.
Now, that will leave a bitter taste in your mouth.
