Woman gets 25 years for poisoning her daughter with antifreeze

The Czech Supreme Court on Tuesday rejected an appeal by a woman last year who attempted to kill her five-year-old daughter by poisoning her with anti-freeze, and confirmed a 25-year sentence handed to the woman by a lower-instance court. In August 2010, the woman gave her daughter a mix of tea and anti-freeze after the child returned from a weekend with her father. The woman tried to fabricate an alibi, and called the ambulance with delay. The girl suffered serious kidney damage.
