Woman admits to attempted murder in soup-poisoning case

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) – A Brownsville woman has pleaded guilty to attempting to kill a man by poisoning his soup.

The Bowling Green Daily News reports 55-year-old Kimberly Vincent pleaded guilty to criminal attempt to commit murder Monday in Warren Circuit Court.

Vincent was charged with mixing a drug-laced solution into Dewayne Reid’s soup from a local restaurant in 2014. Reid was sickened from eating the soup, but survived.

His wife, 43-year-old Judy Reid, has pleaded not guilty to criminal attempt to commit murder, among other related charges. Her case is pending.

According to court records, Judy Reid is accused of asking a drug court participant to assist her in obtaining the narcotic Opana to kill her husband and collect on his life insurance policy.

Vincent is set to be sentenced in December.
