Deranged woman poisons 2 friends so they'd miscarry because she was jealous
I've heard some pretty cruel stories in my lifetime, but none as horrifying as the one about the 26-year-old Austrian woman who purposely poisoned her pregnant friend and sister-in-law so that they would miscarry. Angela Maier was apparently desperate to have a baby herself, but had already suffered from three miscarriages. So instead of being happy for her friends like normal people, she decided to make them suffer as well. What a sick person!

After three horrifying miscarriages, Angela grew very depressed and bitter. So when she learned that both her best friend and sister-in-law were pregnant she became consumed with jealousy. "I couldn't stand the thought of them having babies who would be growing up when mine was dead," she told a court in Klagenfurt, Austria. "Mine should have been with them as well, but instead mine died while theirs went on."
I'm not saying she didn't have the right to be depressed. After losing three kids to miscarriages, who wouldn't be? But to go out of her way to purposely poison her friends so that they could miscarry as well is inhumane. What kind of person would even think about doing something like that?
Apparently she tricked both women into drinking this medicine she was prescribed after her miscarriage. She dropped it into her friend's drink and claimed she was giving her "a special drink for pregnant women that she didn't need anymore." Here's where things get ugly: "A short while later I started to bleed, and then I lost the baby," her friend said in court. "When I found out what she had done, I wrote back and told her she was a murderer. I can't forgive her."
She clearly doesn't have a conscience, because two months later she pulled the same stunt on her sister-in-law. This time she mixed the medicine with hot chocolate. Her sister-in-law told the court that Angela watched her the whole time as she drank. Ugh!
And get this, after making these poor women suffer from miscarriages, she eventually wound up having a baby on her own, her now 3-year-old daughter. It must have eventually eaten at her, because two years after learning that both women were pregnant again she wrote them letters confessing what she did. She is now being sentenced to 18 months in prison.
Only 18 months? You have to be kidding me! This evil, malicious woman deserves to rot behind bars! What a total witch!
