An Omaha woman accused of poisoning her husband said she wasn't trying to kill him, she only wanted to get his attention.
Channel Six Fact Finders First reported this bizarre assault last Friday from the victim's point of view. Now, the suspect insists she's not a "black widow."
The victim, Tom Orr said, "It made me dizzy." After eating two bowls of cereal, he noticed the milk smelled. Orr said, " I figured it was spoiled, but once the fumes came off it was like turpentine."
Forty-six-year-year old Linda Orr admits tainting the milk, but she insist it was to send a message, not murder her husband.
Linda Orr said, "No I wasn't trying to kill him. It was to say 'leave my stuff alone.' He didn't want me to touch his stuff, so I didn't want him to touch my stuff. It was my milk."
Orr claims she poured less than a cup of a floor cleaner into the milk.
She said, "I didn't mean to hurt him. I didn't want to hurt him, but we needed to sit down and talk."
Though not hospitalized, Tom Orr said he still feels affects.
Tom said, "My tongue feels like cotton and when I sweat now it really reeks."
Orr has 24 security cameras in and around his house in an isolated area. He has them to protect against strangers, but he never expected to be harmed by someone close to him; his ex-wife who moved back in last year.
Linda said, "Why would I try killing him, I would get caught because of the camera."
Tom Orr had been married to Linda for 19 years before divorcing. He's still unsure of a motive, but confident in his love for her.
Orr is charged with felony attempted first degree assault because her ex-husband was not seriously injured. She's being held on $100,000, but said she doesn't have the ten percent to bond out.
