Jaqueline Patrick, a 55-year-old woman from the UK who tried to kill her husband by poisoning his Christmas drink with anti-freeze, was sentenced to 15 years on Monday after being undone by a spelling mistake.
"Perhaps most shocking of all was the note she gave to the London Ambulance Service purporting to be from her husband, stating that he did not wish to be resuscitated," police say.
The forged note showed a misspelling of the word ‘dignity’ as ‘dignerty’. When police later asked her to write the word, she made the same mistake. Their daughter was sentenced to 3 years in prison after admitting to inciting her mother to poison her father.
