SHARE Arizona woman tried killing husband by injecting feces into IV, cops say

When it came to trying to permanently get rid of her husband, an Arizona woman allegedly went with option No. 2 —injecting her husband with feces.

Authorities say Rosemary Vogel, 65, put fecal matter in her 66-year-old husband’s IV while he was in the hospital recovering from heart surgery, reports.

Hospital staff went to the room after the warning alarm on the monitoring machines sounded and found Vogel manipulating her husband’s IV, according to Sgt. Joe Favazzo. A nurse found that the IV had a brown substance in the line and immediately removed it from the man’s arm.

Vogel then allegedly tried to drain the fluid from the bag, but the nurse in the room wouldn’t let her.

Upon searching, authorities found three more syringes in Vogel’s purse, two of which tested positive for feces, as did the remaining material in the IV line.

“This is the first that I’ve heard where fecal matter has been injected into an IV system,” Favazzo told

Vogel is facing felony charges of attempted first-degree murder.
