Man Admits He Put Rat Poison in Wife's Coffee

By Associated Press | 

A central Kentucky man has admitted to putting rat poison in his wife's coffee.

The Richmond Register, the Lexington Herald-Leader and WKYT-TV report William T. Cain entered a guilty plea on Thursday to an amended charge of attempted manslaughter. He originally was charged with attempted murder.

His former wife, Deborah Cain, called police last May to report that her husband had prepared coffee for her that was discolored. She said she had been warned that he had made comments about wanting to harm her.

Prosecutors are recommending that Cain be sentenced to six-and-a-half years in prison.

Sentencing was set for Feb. 14.
