A middle-school teacher in Virginia says she had no clue she was being slowly poisoned with hand sanitizer that was being surreptitiously added to her tea by two of her students, but says she has been feeling ill for some time.
Those students now face felony charges and have been removed from Hines Middle School, where Miller has been a teacher for over 40 years.
"I was shocked and I couldn't quite process it fast enough to realize what it meant," she said of learning from two female students that her drink was being spiked with Germ X by two male students.
The motive behind the unnamed teens' alleged envenoming remains unknown.
The accused students were placed in an alternative school shortly after their suspension.
They are being charged with attempted poisoning, a Class 3 felony which carries a minimum sentence of five years in prison and a fine of up to $100,000.
