Woman accused of injecting fecal matter into husband's IV

A Chandler woman is accused of doing the unthinkable to her husband: trying to kill him while he was recovering from a heart procedure.

Authorities say once the man's procedure was over, the man was with his wife, Rosemary Vogel.  While in the recovery room, a warning alarm sounded, alerting hospital staff.  When the staff entered the room, they found Vogel manipulating her husband's IV.

According to the police report, "Upon inspection, staff found that the IV had a brown substance in the line and immediately removed it from his arm.  Rosemary attempted to drain the fluid from the line into a waste basket, but the nurse intervened. The substance was tested in their lab and found to contain fecal matter."

Police later arrested Vogel for aggravated assault.  A search of her purse revealed three more syringes, two of which contained fluid.  The third appeared to have trace amounts of fecal matter.

The victim is expected to recover from the surgery, as well as the alleged attempt on his life, say police.

Vogel's charges have since been updated to reflect attempted first degree murder.

    It appears the subway bedbug problem we've been reporting is getting worse. Commuters already have to contend with sweltering platforms, scurrying rats and packed train cars, and now there's another transit woe: fear of bedbugs.
