AN INDONESIAN woman, who allegedly tried to kill her ex by sending him a poisoned takeaway, ended up killing a delivery driver’s 10-year-old son after his father took the food home.
Nani Aprilliani Nurjaman, 25, sent satay chicken sprinkled with potassium cyanide to the house of her ex-boyfriend, Tomy, in an apparent attempt to kill him.
She paid a motorcycle taxi driver to deliver the food to Tomy's home in Bantul, Yogyakarta on April 25.
According to reports, she approached the 47-year-old motorcycle taxi driver, named Bandiamn, on the street and told him her name was Hamid.
Bandiman took the delivery to the address, where Tomy's new wife opened the door. Tomy himself was not home at the time.
Confused by the delivery, she asked who had sent it, to which Bandiman replied "Hamid".
Because she did not know anyone with that name, she refused the delivery, telling Bandiman to take it home with him and have it as an iftar meal.
He took the food home with him, which his wife and 10-year-old son later ate, causing them to vomit immediately.
The pair were taken to hospital in the city of Yogyakarta, where Bandiman's wife responded well to treatment.
His young son, however, died after eating the poisoned food.
The police launched an investigation into the incident and they managed to trace Nurjaman through Bandiman.
The police believe Nurjaman tried to kill Tomy because she was unhappy he had married another woman instead of herself. She could face the death penalty if convicted.
The victim has been named as Naba Faiz Prasetya, aged 10.
Ingesting potassium cyanide causes the victim to lose consciousness, and then eventually suffer brain death caused by cerebral hypoxia.
Nurjaman awaits trial in preventive custody.
