York County deputies said 52-year-old Lana Clayton confessed to investigators after an autopsy uncovered a high amount of tetrahydrozoline in her husband’s body.

The chemical is found in over-the-counter eye drops such as Visine.

Authorities say 64-year-old Stephen Clayton was found dead July 21 in the couple’s home in Clover.

Arrest warrants and the statement from deputies didn’t give a motive for the alleged poisoning.

Lana Clayton also is charged with malicious tampering with a drug product or food.

Jail records did not indicate if she had a lawyer.

      1. Yes ma’am. It is quite amazing the range of articles on the web within different countries. I enjoy reading and learning and about all that I am able to do is sit here and read each day so when I find an article that I think others might also either enjoy or learn from I reblog it for folks to notice.

      2. You are correct about the reality that if a person really wants to do something and they don’t know how, if they have a little bit of ability and a little bit of smarts they can find out how to build everything from nuclear bombs to space craft to poison drinks. For me I guess its a good thing that I’m not smart enough nor do I care enough to want to do any of those things. I prefer just being an old easy going hillbilly that doesn’t want to do harm to anyone, its an easier lifestyle.
