Doctor Poisons her Husband with Drano (He set up Hidden Camera)
A California dermatologist has been arrested after her husband secretly recorded her allegedly poisoning him by pouring Drano into his drinks, according to officials and a filing for a restraining order. Dr. Yue Yu, 45, was arrested Thursday and booked into the Orange County Jail, the Irvine Police Department said in a news release. She was released Friday after posting $30,000 bond. Her husband of 10 years, who was not identified by police, contacted Irvine authorities Thursday, saying he suspected Yu was poisoning him. An attorney for the husband identified him as Dr. Jack Chen, 53, a radiologist. In a bid to catch his wife in the act, the husband "placed cameras in the home that surreptitiously recorded evidence in the case," and shared the video with police, Lt. Bill Bingham told NBC News. Police arrived at the couple's home with a search warrant the same day, interviewed Yu and subsequently arrested her. Yu, who has not been formally charged in the case, “vehemently and unequivocally denies ever attempting to poison her husband or anyone else,” her attorney, David E. Wohl, said. According to police, the husband fell ill “over the course of one month” and sustained “significant internal injuries.” Chen's attorney said his client filed for a restraining order against Yu on Friday. He filed for divorce the same day, court records show. Chen said in the filing for a restraining order that he caught Yu on video on three occasions putting the drain cleaner into his hot lemonade drink.
