“I wouldn’t use that much to kill him, but just enough to make him not have an erection,” the suspect said

A Nevada woman is believed to be on the lam in Mexico after confessing to poisoning her husband’s breakfast cereal and energy drinks to avoid unwanted sex.

According to the Daily News, Andrea Heming confessed in 2015 to contaminating her now ex-husband’s food with boric acid, which is used to kill cockroaches, because he would have unwanted sex with her while she was sleeping.

“I wouldn’t use that much to kill him, but just enough to make him not have an erection,” Heming said in her confession, according to the police report.

Though she confessed to the alleged crime, Heming fled Nevada before her sentencing. Authorities told KSNV news station they believe she is hiding out in Mexico.

Her ex-husband, identified only as “Ralph,” told 3 News that he suffered nose bleeds and diarrhea for six months. He told KSNV he was “surprised” his ex was able to flee.

“I thought we had a better system of keeping track and holding people responsible,” he said.

He also told the news station that Heming confessed to similar behavior when she was a flight attendant.

“She did reveal to me a story where she was a flight attendant at one time, and she had a customer — you know a passenger who was she said was unruly. She actually put sedatives in her drink,” Ralph said.

Heming could face up to 15 years in prison if she is caught.

Anyone with information on Heming’s whereabouts urged to call Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555.
