Alexis Jennings Pleads No Contest To Aggravated Assault Charges
A Casper woman is not challenging accusations that she tried to poison her stepmother with eye-drops.
Eighteen-year old Alexis Jennings has pleaded no contest to one charge of aggravated assault.
Prosecutors say from July through November of 2012, Jennings tried to poison her stepmother by lacing her coffee and tea with Visine.
Prosecutors say Jennings used as much as a quarter of a bottle per drink, and went through as many as 20 bottles during that time.
A law enforcement official said that Jennings was upset that her stepmother was unable to keep a secret, and that she got the poisoning idea from an unrelated story she saw on the internet.
As part of a plea deal, prosecutors will seek no more than a two-to-four year prison sentence.
Jennings is being held on $25,000 bond, and will be sentenced at a later date.
