Ex-CMU Student Pleads Guilty in Poisoning Case


MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich. (AP) - A former Central Michigan University student who authorities say tried to poison a roommate at their apartment following a dispute about dirty dishes has pleaded guilty in the case.

The Morning Sun of Mount Pleasant reports 19-year-old Kayla Bonkowski of Sterling Heights entered the plea Friday to attempted poisoning. The charge carries up to 5 years in prison, but she could get her record cleared in a deal with prosecutors.

Sentencing is May 10. Bonkowski originally faced up to 15 years on a poisoning charge.

Authorities say Bonkowski in November put bleach in a glass of iced tea at the apartment in Union Township, located near the Mount Pleasant school about 120 miles northwest of Detroit. Police say the roommate was taken to an area hospital for treatment.
