Houston doctor charged with poisoning her lover

Updated:

HOUSTON (AP) - Prosecutors have charged a Houston oncologist with spiking her lover and coworker's coffee with a sweet-tasting chemical used in antifreeze and medical research.

Ana Maria Gonzalez-Angulo, a breast cancer oncologist at the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, was charged last week with aggravated assault against Dr. George Blumenschein, a specialist in lung and head and neck cancers at the institution. The two were in "a casual sexual relationship," according to a criminal complaint.

The complaint says caused serious health problems for Blumenschein, including renal failure.

Gonzalez-Angulo's lawyer tells the Houston Chronicle that his client is "completely innocent" and the allegations "are totally inconsistent with her personal and professional life."

Gonzalez-Angulo is free on $50,000 bail. M.D. Anderson officials say she is on paid administrative leave.
