Police have arrested Yue Yu, a California dermatologist for continuously poisoning her husband, causing him to contract a month-long illness.
Yue Yu, 45, was busted Thursday after Irvine police served a search warrant at the couple’s home.
Investigators said Yu’s husband turned over “video evidence” backing up his belief that she’s the reason he’s been sick for a month, the Los Angeles Times reported.
Yu’s husband told police he suspected she had been poisoning him and set up surveillance video to confirm his hunch, Irvine police Lt. Bill Bingham told the Orange County Register.
The unidentified husband “sustained significant internal injuries,” but is expected to recover, police said.
Yu, 45, is affiliated with Providence Mission Hospital, which issued a statement noting her arrest while saying staffers were cooperating with authorities.
She is due to appear in court Monday and is being held on $30,000 bail, online jail records show.
It was not immediately known whether Yu had an attorney.
According to an online profile, Ms Yu, who also goes by the first name Emily, studied medicine at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri and practices at Providence Mission Hospital.
In a statement to the Register, the hospital said it was fully cooperating with the police investigation.
“This incident is a domestic matter which occurred in Irvine, and we want to reassure our community that there has been no impact on our patients,” Providence Mission Hospital said.
It’s unclear how Ms Yu was allegedly poisoning her husband.
