BARTOW, Fla. -

A Central Florida mail carrier was arrested on attempted murder charges after she tried to poison her husband’s tuna fish sandwich, according to deputies.

Beth Dickison Richards, 37, of Lake Wales, was arrested Friday on charges of attempted first-degree murder, poisoning food with the intent to kill, possession of cannabis and possession of drug paraphernalia.

According to the Polk County Sheriff’s Office, deputies were called to Richards’ home Thursday night in connection with a poisoning case.  Deputies said they met with Richards’ husband, Gregory Lawrence Richards, and her step-sister, Jessica Jarvis.

Jarvis said Beth Richards told her earlier in the day that she tried to poison and kill Gregory Richards by crushing up multiple Trazodone pills and placing them in a tuna fish sandwich.

    Ken Cuccinelli: Conservatives’ New ‘It’ Candidate
    By Mark J. Fitzgibbons

    This past week Lieutenant Governor Bill Bolling announced that he was dropping out of the race for Virginia’s governor, but left open the door to his running as an independent. He issued a disappointingly divisive statement that Richard Viguerie called Bolling’s Charlie Crist moment.

    Bolling took an unfortunate and cheap shot against his primary opponent and now-presumptive Republican nominee, Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli. Bolling’s statement was a dénouement of betrayal to his conservative voters and supporters.
    [...]
    In his exit from the governor’s race, Bolling insulted those of us who believe in and fight for small-government principles. He would do well to strongly endorse Cuccinelli and make amends with conservatives who would have voted for him had he been the Republican nominee for governor.

    Ken Cuccinelli’s statement about Bolling’s exit was nothing but gracious. Cuccinelli is a gracious guy who also happens to be a fighter for principles. It is this latter trait that his opponents will try to use to define him “as a radical, angry, impractical ideologue” and as the “new face of the far right.”

    The fact is that Ken is a compassionate and kind man. He is also a principled official. He is pro-women, pro-children and pro-environment. He also understands what Alexander Hamilton wrote in Federalist 78, which is that the Constitution is our “fundamental law” designed to protect liberty. Liberty isn’t anti-anyone. It is pro-everyone.

    Cuccinelli’s proven that he is true to the rule of law whether it involves private interests or the government, and whether either is violating or following the law. He understands, however, that government power is limited by the rule of law. Cuccinelli has refused to take action when he lacked legal authority — even when conservatives wished he had. Ken won’t violate legal constraints on his power even to win votes. That is a rarity among elected officials who too often think that they can do good by exceeding their authority.

    Ken is now the conservative ‘it’ candidate following 2012.

    time for the blood-vetting: how’s that amnesty working out for everybody??

    She should have made a video of him eating the tuna sandwich and given it to the local animal liberation front cell with a note saying that it was non dolphin safe tuna. He would have been dead by morning.

    Ugly and stupid. That may be Ann/Brian +24.

    “Trazodone is often used instead of tricyclic antidepressants because it is very difficult to overdose on.”

    But all is not well…

    “Trazodone has been associated with the occurrence of priapism.”
