WAUKESHA, Wis. (AP) — A jury has convicted a Wisconsin woman of fatally poisoning her beautician friend’s water with eye drops five years ago.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that a Waukesha County jury convicted 39-year-old Jessy Kurczewski of Franklin of first-degree intentional homicide and two counts of theft in connection with the death of Lynn Hernan of Pewaukee.

Hernan was found dead in her apartment in 2018. Analysts found tetrahydrozoline, a chemical found in Visine, in her body.

According to a criminal complaint, Kurczewski told investigators she gave Hernan a water bottle containing six bottles of Visine.

Prosecutors also accused Kurczewski of stealing more than $290,000 from Hernan.
