Stacy Splawn - Jailed After Attempting To Poison Husband With Paralyzing Drug After He Refused To Grant Her A Divorce

Spartanburg County, South Carolina (The Weekly Vice) - Stacy Dianne Splawn, a 38-year-old Spartanburg County was was jailed Monday after she allegedly tried to poison her husband to death after he refused to grant her a divorce.

According to the Spartanburg County Sheriff's Office, Splawn's husband met with police and reported that she had attempted to poison him by injecting him with succinylcholine, a paralyzing agent, after he refused to divorce her.

Splawn's husband told detectives that he refused the divorce, reminding her that a marriage vow states "until death do us part."

Splawn allegedly responded, stating "That will be sooner than you think."

He told police that he found a medicine bottle and a syringe on Splawn's night stand and became concerned after reading the label.

As a precaution, the husband filled the syringe with water and threw the medicine bottle away.

He also told police that she had stolen the medication from Mary Black Hospital, where she was recently fired from her position as a nurse.

Later that night, the couple was in bed discussing their marital problems when Splawn realized that he had discovered and hid the succinylcholine.

He told her that he filled the syringe with the medication, then threw the rest away. She then attempted to stick the syringe into him and inject him with what she thought was the paralyzing drug. He was able to get the syringe away from her, then ended the argument by agreeing to the divorce.

Splawn was booked into jail and charged with criminal domestic violence. She was released after posting $3,500 bond.
