Jan 19, 2021, 03:05 am EST — 70-Year-Old Suncha Tinevra from Queens, New York, has been arrested and charged with attempted assault in the second degree, reckless endangerment in the second degree, and criminal possession of a weapon in the fourth degree after a surveillance video caught her spiking his coffee with ant and roach killer.
In the footage, Tinevra can be seen “squeezing a white powdery substance from a bottle with a red cap and yellow label” that she kept under the sink, the statement said. Detectives retrieved a bottle from her home on Jan. 14 which, according to the label, contained 100 percent boric acid for killing ants and roaches.
On January 15, she appeared before a court judge at Queens Criminal Court, where she pleaded “not guilty” to all the charges. She faces a sentence of up to four years if found guilty.
District Attorney Katz said, “Domestic violence is not limited to mental and physical abuse. The
defendant in this case allegedly used deception to sicken her spouse. The victim did become sick, but
thankfully did not die. The defendant now faces serious charges for her alleged actions.”
