SIX WORD » LOVE

Relationship not working? There's always antifreeze.

A prominent Houston oncologist is accused of attempting to poison a colleague whom she was dating by lacing his coffee with a chemical used in antifreeze.

Dr. Ana Maria Gonzalez-Angulo, 42, was charged with aggravated assault of a family member after she allegedly put ethylene glycol, often found in antifreeze, into a cup of coffee and served it to Dr. George Blumenschein at her Houston home in January, ABC station KTRK-TV in Houston reported.

When Blumenschein, who reportedly preferred his coffee black, asked Gonzalez-Angulo why the coffee tasted sweet, she told him she put Splenda in it, KTRK-TV reported. When he asked her for a fresh cup, she allegedly told him to finish the coffee she gave him before serving him another cup, which tasted just as sweet.
