Woman, 37, 'poisoned pal, 62, with eye drops and stole £210k for casinos and spas'

A woman has been accused of killing her wealthy friend with an overdose of eye drops.

Jessy R Kurczewski, 37, allegedly stole hundreds of thousands of dollars from Lynn Hernan, 62, before poisoning her in Wisconsin, US.

Prosecutors say she used Tetrahydrozoline, the main ingredient in eyedrops, to fatally spike her water bottle before making it appear accidental or a suicide.

She scammed the victim out of nearly $300,000 (£210,000), which she blew on gambling at casinos, spa treatments and gifts for friends, it is claimed.

A criminal complaint alleges she “had a motive, the method and the opportunity to intentionally cause the death”, according to reports.

Kurczewski called police to the address on October 3 2018 to tell them her friend was not conscious or breathing, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

When police arrived at the house in Pewaukee, they found hairstylist Ms Hernan dead in a seat in her living room.

The table next to her was covered with prescription pills and there was crushed medication on her chest, ABC News reported.

The death was ruled a drug overdose at first.

Kurczewski claimed she had been checking on her a few times a week and was caring for her.

She told authorities it was possible the victim was suicidal – but Ms Hernan’s friends said they didn’t believe she would overdose.

A toxicological report later showed she had a fatal dose of eyedrops in her system.

Detectives reopened the case about three months after the death.

The criminal complaint said the doctor found it “could be considered poisonous to the human body” and would be “impossible” to have that level of the medicine in the blood “just by using it in the eyes”.

Kurczewski denied being involved in foul play but was eventually arrested on Friday, June 4.

She was charged with first-degree intentional homicide and two counts of felony theft and is being held on $1million (£700,000) bail at the Waukesha County Jail.
