A man who has plotted with his girlfriend to kill her baby-eye by filling a bottle of mother's milk with pulverized painkillers has been sentenced to 15 years in prison.
Sir Marshall S. Snyder III, 23, from Indiana, made a conspiracy with the 20-year-old friend Sarai Rodriguez-Miranda to poison the eleven-month-old girl in January last year.
A court heard how Snyder and Miranda formed the conspiracy after her brother, his partner, and their baby went to live in the house of Miranda's mother where she was staying.

The couple initially planned to stay for a short time, but Miranda became angry when they stayed longer than she wanted, reports the Indy Star.
In January 2017, the couple began exchanging text messages about poisoned breast milk that was kept in the fridge to go back to the pair.
In a message, Miranda said: "I will pulverise some of these pills because they have decided that they can stay longer and kill their baby."
& # 39; Search for how many mg a baby can kill, & # 39; Snyder responded.
The couple braided a bottle of breast milk with enough painkillers to kill the girl, but fortunately Miranda's mother intervened
In another message that discusses the pain relief, Miranda said: "I think they were on the counter for everyone so I could not see what they were.
& I honestly do not worry about being caught. They do not suspect me. & # 39;
Miranda also sent an excited message when the stringed bottles were removed from the refrigerator.
But Miranda was unknown, her mother had seen the messages on her phone and – instead of feeding the baby with the bottles – she took them to the police.
Laboratory tests showed that they contained about nine Excedrin tablets, paracetamol, caffeine and aspirin, which would have been enough to kill the girl.
Shortly before she was arrested, Miranda sent another message to Synder with the words: "Why did not that baby die, dude, that is stupid. They really threw it away. & # 39;
After the couple realized their plan had failed, Snyder helped Miranda escape the state and go to her father's home in Michigan where they were arrested.
Snyder was initially accused of complicity in murder, but that was reduced to helping an aggravated battery as part of a plea agreement.
Miranda was sentenced to 25 years in prison after she pleaded in March last year for an attempted murder.
