Teen accused of poisoning grandmother's collards

FAYETTEVILLE, CUMBERLAND COUNTY - Investigators say a teenager tried to kill her grandmother by dumping insecticide and termite killer into a pot of collard greens.

The 17-year-old Fayetteville girl is charged with two counts of attempted first degree murder.

A friend of the grandmother's also ate the greens on Easter Sunday.

Both were treated at a hospital and released.
