A 12-year old has been detained for allegedly trying to kill her mother on two separate occasions after she confiscated her iPhone.

The pre-teen, from Boulder, Colorado in the USA, is accused of spiking her mother’s coffee and smoothies with bleach on both occasions.

'Mom noticed an odour of bleach in the drink'

The mother first reported feeling ill earlier this month after drinking a smoothie her daughter had made for her.

“Mom noticed an odour of bleach in the drink and thought her daughter had cleaned the glass prior to making the beverage and did not rinse all the bleach out,” reads a statement by the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office.

Later in the week, the girl poured bleach into a water container her mother kept in the bedroom. This time the mother noticed the strong smell of bleach coming from the bottle and confronted her daughter.

“This is when she learned her daughter had developed the plan to kill her for taking away her iPhone.”

While her mother is currently in god health, the 12-year-old was detained at the Boulder County Juvenile Center on two counts of attempted first-degree murder.
