WYOMING, Mich. (AP) -- Authorities say a 25-year-old southwest Michigan man who used sippy cups to deliver poisonous cocktails to his two children has been charged.
Jose Enrique Oliva-Rosa of Wyoming was arraigned Thursday on two counts each of attempted murder, poisoning and second-degree child abuse.
Police say Oliva-Rosa forced his 6-year-old daughter and 2-year-old son to drink a concoction that included cold medicine, brake fluid, ibuprofen and rust treatment fluid. Oliva-Rosa also consumed a similar drink.
Officers discovered all three in Oliva-Rosa's home on Tuesday after being alerted by a 911 call. They were taken to the hospital, and the children were later released to their biological mother, who was not living with Oliva-Rosa.
A June 9 hearing is scheduled.
