A Nevada woman is still on the run almost two years after confessing to poisoning her husband's Lucky Charms cereal because she didn't want sex. The husband, now an ex-husband, tells WLOS that he has moved to California but he is still worried that Andrea Heming will resurface. In 2015, Heming admitted putting boric acid, a poison used to kill cockroaches and other pests, in her husband's cereal, energy drinks, and Miracle Whip to cause impotence. She posted $50,000 bail after pleading guilty and never showed up at a sentencing hearing. Police suspect she fled to her native Mexico.

"Andrea stated that she wouldn't use that much to kill him but just enough to make him not have an erection," a police report obtained by the Las Vegas Review-Journal at the time said. "Andrea further stated she wouldn’t use enough to kill as she was in the final process of becoming an American citizen." Her husband told police he had diarrhea every day for around six months and also suffered from lethargy and unexplained nosebleeds. (Read more poisoning stories.)
