A prominent California dermatologist is behind bars after she reportedly poisoned her husband with drain cleaner.
Irvine resident Yue "Emily" Yu, 45, was taken into custody last week after her husband, 53-year-old Jack Chen, gave police a video recording that showed his wife putting Drano in his tea, according to the Irvine Police Department. Chen says she repeatedly poisoned him for more than a month before he finally caught on. Chen suffered "significant internal injuries but is expected to recover," police say.
Despite the video evidence, Yu's defense attorney says the allegations are "absolutely and unequivocally false." He adds, "She has never, in any way, shape or form, tried to harm her husband or her children."
Her attorney says her husband wants custody of their kids and that she was only "pouring the drain cleaner in a cup so it wouldn't splash.".
