Neglect can damage a relationship, as can poisoning your partner. Vickie Jo Mills, 33, of McConnellsburg, PA has been accused of poisoning her boyfriend on multiple occasions, all because she wanted "more attention." 45-year-old Thurman Nesbitt lll had experienced nausea, vomiting, difficulty breathing and fluctuating blood pressure for years before his physician figured out that he was being poisoned using tetrahydrozoline, which is found in over-the-counter eye drops.

A blood test came back positive for the chemical, and his doctor called the police. State troopers interviewed Mills, who admitted to putting Visine in Nesbitt's water 10 to 12 times since June 2009. She insisted that she never wanted to kill him, she "only wanted him to pay more attention to her."

Now, she has the attention of the law. Nesbitt has been charged with ten counts each of aggravated assault, simple assault, and reckless endangerment.
