Therese Kozlowski grew suspicious because she became ill every time husband of 22 years Brian made coffee for her. She set up cameras in their home in Macomb Township, Michigan, and saw him putting what turned out to be antihistamine into the beverage. He started poisoning her in 2018 while they were waiting for her divorce to come through. Therese said that the drink left her feeling tired, sick and with blurred vision and believes that her husband was trying to killer her. She said on one occasion she almost fell asleep at the wheel of her car.
Brian Kozlowski’s lawyer said he had ‘profound remorse’ and put his actions down to going through an ‘ugly divorce’. Prosecutor Eric Smith said the 60-day sentence was a ‘slap in the face of the victim and the justice system in general’.
