A man in Utah allegedly discovered his wife was poisoning him with eye drop solution after staying home from work to investigate potential causes of his illness, KSL reported. Dallen Tubbs allegedly discovered “numerous empty eye drop solution bottles with the tops pulled off them in a black, cloth bag with a zipper,” court documents state.
