CLEVELAND (AP) — A Cleveland woman has been convicted of killing her fiancé by poisoning his raspberry ice tea with antifreeze.

Thirty-five-year-old Holly McFeeture was convicted Wednesday in the 2006 death of 31-year-old Matthew Podolak, the father of their two children. The jury convicted her of aggravated murder and contaminating the tea.

She could face life in prison.

Defense attorney Bret Jordan says he respects the verdict but is disappointed with it and assumes an appeal will be filed.

The prosecution says the woman began poisoning her fiancé days or weeks before he died.

The Plain Dealer (bit.ly/164TiMC) in Cleveland reports the prosecution has said the motive was the woman's desire to end the relationship.
