Drugs are bad m’kay! You can really tell this guy loves his wife!!!
According to NY Daily News reports:
A Virginia Beach man is asking for donations to the legal defense of his wife — who allegedly tried to kill their two kids.
Jeff Aiken, 25, insists prescription drugs are to blame for his wife Lorita’s shocking breakdown that made her allegedly feed her kids cake and ice cream covered in prescription drugs.
“It wasn’t her,” Aiken told the Virginian-Pilot. “I am 100 percent certain that without all those drugs in her system, it wouldn’t have happened. I just want to get her the help she needs, and I know she won’t get that sitting in jail.”
The nightmare began Nov. 22 when he returned home at 4 a.m. from a double-shift at a Virginia Beach restaurant.
A chilling message on his computer’s screen saver awaited him: “You will never hurt me or my children again,” it read, according to Aiken, who detailed the horrifying night to the Virginian-Pilot Tuesday.
In the kitchen he saw open prescription bottles and white powder from crushed pills.
As he rushed upstairs each step had a piece of paper bearing the same awful note: “You will never hurt me or my children again.”
In his bedroom his worst fears were realized: His 5-year-old son, 4-year-old daughter and Lorita all lay unconscious beside cake and ice cream covered in crushed pills.
The three survived.
Lorita is being held without bond on two charges of attempted murder and altering food and drink, the Virginian-Pilot reported.
And now Jeff Aiken is trying to raise money for his wife’s upcoming trial, saying that she had become addicted to painkillers, anti-depressants and sleeping pills.
At least he’s loyal right? Some folks would have bounced after that.
