A 37-year-old woman killed and stole from a family friend, authorities say.
According to reporters for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Jessy R. Kurczewski apparently used eye drops to poison the victim, and then she carefully curated the scene to make it look as though that person had overdosed on medication.
Kurczewski was apparently the victim’s caregiver at the time of the murder. The woman, who was pronounced dead when police arrived, was found reclining in a chair, with pill bottles and powder littered around her.
“The state believes that [the] defendant has evidenced her capacity to take advantage of at-risk individuals and poses a risk to the public,” said a lawyer.
