YOLO is not an applicable life philosophy when it comes to attempted murder.
Tyt’ana Lisa-Nicole Johnson of Fayetteville, N.C. didn’t seem to understand that when she decided to poison her grandmother, Gaylon Moody, on Easter Sunday. According to reports, the 17-year-old was pissed off because her grandma confiscated her cell phone. So, as payback, Johnson confessed to putting pesticides in Moody’s collard greens.
After returning home from church, Moody and Johnson’s friend Clifton Evans sat down for their “last supper.”
“About an hour and a half later, we started getting sick,” said Moody. “My fingers started feeling numb, my chest, my face, my mouth. We were staggering like we were intoxicated, but neither one of us drank.”
Both Moody and Evans made it to the hospital in time for doctors to save their lives. Johnson, who was charged with two counts of attempted first-degree murder and is being held on $500,000 bond, apologized for nearly killing Evans, explaining the poisonous greens were meant for grandma only.
“They got her locked up, but she needs help. Seriously, something’s wrong with her. People don’t do that over cellphones,” Evans told reporters. “I ain’t eating nobody’s collard greens now except my mother’s,” he added.
That sounds like a wise plan.
