Airman’s wife arrested for attempted murder after being caught on camera using poison

A woman in Arizona has been arrested after she allegedly tried to poison her husband- who just so happens to be serving in the US Air Force.

Melody Felicano Johnson, 39, was arrested earlier this month on a slew of charges, including attempted first-degree murder, aggravated assault, and adding harmful substances to food/drink/medicine.

Johnson and her husband, who share one child together, are reported to be going through a divorce.

Prior to his recent reassignment at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base in Arizona, the Johnsons were stationed in Germany.

While overseas, Mr. Johnson begin noticing that his coffee tasted strange.

Taking matters into his own hands, Mr. Johnson subtly began testing the water supply from the tap and ultimately tested the coffee pot as well.

Upon testing the inside of the coffee pot, it was revealed high concentrations of chlorine were present.

Suspicious that there was foul play afoot, Johnson set up a hidden camera, resulting in the stunning revelation that Mrs. Johnson was tampering with his coffee.

From then on out, Johnson pretended to drink his coffee and did not go to investigators until getting back to Arizona.

“On July 6, he filed a report with the Tucson Police Department. Police said because the video was not clear and you couldn’t tell what she was doing, a report was taken but not followed up on,” AZ Family reports.

“The man then bought another camera, one that looked like a fire alarm, and attached it to the ceiling. On July 7, the family moved into permanent housing and the cameras were installed there. On July 18, he took multiple videos to the TPD, which court paperwork says showed Johnson putting bleach into the coffee machine.”

While being held on a $250,000 bond, she was arraigned on Friday and pleaded not guilty.
