A South Carolina woman has been charged with murder after admitting to investigators that she poisoned her husband using over-the-counter eye drops.

Deputies say Lana Sue Clayton added eye drops containing tetrahydrozoline to her husband’s drinking water over a three day period.

Stephen Clayton was found dead in their Clover home on July 21. An autopsy later revealed elevated levels of the drug in his system.

Lana Clayton also is charged with malicious tampering with a drug product or food.

Jail records did not indicate if she had a lawyer.
