(Newser) – A 13-year-old Florida girl is accused of poisoning her adoptive mother and possibly her siblings for more than a year, Fox News reports. The girl, who was adopted years ago from Mexico, confessed to putting insect poison and dog feces in food her mother ate, as well as hand soap in water she drank. As her health deteriorated, the mother got toxicology tests that found traces of arsenic in her blood. She has so far refused to press charges against her daughter, who is currently at a health care facility. For more on the sad case, click here.
