Aaron Hickman - Charged With Poisoning Two Toddler Nephews After Arguing With Brother Over Rent

Syracuse, New York (The Weekly Vice) - Aaron Hickman, a 20-year-old Syracuse man was jailed Thursday after he allegedly poisoned his nephews by pouring bleach in their milk.

According to Syracuse police, Hickman was reportedly living with his brother, his brother's girlfriend, and the couple's two sons, when he and his brother got into an argument.

At the conclusion of the argument, the brother told Hickman that he needed to move out immediately. That news didn't sit well with Hickman.

In retaliation, Hickman allegedly poured bleach into a container of milk that he found in the couple's refrigerator. The next morning, the children (ages 1 and 3) drank the tainted milk and began vomiting.

The children were taken to a local hospital, where doctors determined that they had been poisoned. They were treated and released.

Detectives apprehended Hickman, who admitted to putting bleach in the milk.

Hickman stated that his brother was upset with him because he hadn't helped with rent or other related bills while he stayed with the couple. He also claimed that the couple called him "slow and stupid" on numerous occasions.

Hickman was booked into the Syracuse City Justice Center and charged with felony second-degree assault and misdemeanor endangering the welfare of a child. He is currently being held on $15,000 bail or $25,000 bond.
