An unidentified Boulder 12-year-old allegedly tried to poison her mother with bleach — not once, but twice! — after she confiscated her iPhone, according to KDVR. When the mother first thought she smelled bleach in her smoothie, she chalked it up to a cleaning mistake, even though she felt sick afterward. Things escalated quickly from there. “When she smelled the bleach in the carafe she confronted her daughter and her daughter told her that she was trying to kill her for taking her iPhone,” Boulder County Sheriff’s commander Heidi Prentup told KDVR. The 12-year-old is now being held on attempted murder charges. She will not have an iPhone in prison.
