N.C. Teen Accused Of Poisoning Grandmother’s Collard Greens After Cellphone Dispute

FAYETTEVILLE, N.C., April 28 (UPI) — A North Carolina teen has been charged with two counts of attempted first-degree murder after she allegedly poisoned a pot of her grandmother’s collard greens while the 51-year-old woman was attending Easter services.

Tyt’ana Lisa-Nicole Johnson is accused of pouring insecticide and termiticide into the greens because she was upset that her grandmother, Gaylon Moody, took away her cellphone. Moody and a friend, Clifton Evans, had to be taken to the hospital after eating the greens.

“She was on punishment. I had taken her cellphone from her. She got mad because I took her cellphone from her, and she poisoned my food,” Moody told the Fayetteville Observer. “I’ll tell you one thing: It ain’t good to feel.”

According to arrest warrants, Johnson admitted to poisoning the collard greens. She also apologized to Evans for making him ill.

“I asked her about it. She said she didn’t mean for me to get sick,” Evans said. “Actually, it was all aimed at her grandmother. I didn’t really believe this thing could happen. You hear about this kind of stuff on television, but you don’t think it could happen to you.”

Moody hasn’t spoken to her granddaughter since the incident. “I was like, ‘Wow,’” Moody said. “Can she really do something like this over a cellphone?”
