Johanna Vera and her boyfriend had broken up two weeks before she tried to kill herself and her two children with a concoction of rat poison and juice, authorities said Tuesday.

Vera, 23, charged with two counts of attempted murder late Monday, drove to a Walgreens on Nov. 29 and bought Tomcat rat poison and some over-the-counter medications, Cook County prosecutors said.

She took the purchases home and mixed up juice, the poison, boric acid, Tylenol, ibuprofen and cough medicine, prosecutors and police said.

A Chicago woman accused of trying to kill her 3-year-old and 10-month-old children by spiking their juice drink with rat poison and boric acid has pleaded guilty to charges.

Shortly after entering her guilty plea Johanna Vera, 25, was sentenced to more than eight years in prison.

Before her sentencing, Vera, speaking in Spanish and through a translator, said she is sorry for what happened, expressing hope she will reconnect with her sons after her release.

No one died as a result of drinking the juice, but the boys and Vera, who also drank poison, were hospitalized after the Nov. 29, 2007 incident.

Vera allegedly told police she wanted to die and take her children with her after her ex-boyfriend said he no longer loved her.
