Chilling moment An Arizona woman accused of killing her US Air Force husband by poisoning his coffee with BLEACH is seen on a hidden kitchen camera pouring suspicious-looking liquid into the coffee maker
Shocking new footage, secretly filmed in an Arizona home, shows the wife of a US Air Force worker repeatedly pouring a liquid into the coffee machine that he says is bleach, which he claims is a attempt to kill him.
Melody Felicano Johnson was arrested in August and charged with the attempted murder of Roby Johnson. She had filed for divorce, but they were still living together while the trial was completed: he noticed that his coffee tasted funny and began to suspect that she was trying to kill him to claim his life insurance policy.
Roby Johnson placed a series of hidden cameras in their home and the footage was obtained by ABC News on Friday.
One camera captured Melody in the laundry room, pouring bleach from a large bottle into a small container.
Another caught her looking over her shoulder as she poured liquid into the coffee maker in their kitchen.

Roby Johnson also filmed himself testing the water in the coffee machine with a pool chemical test kit. He showed the results on camera, which showed extremely high levels of chlorine in the water – and he said it ‘stinks’ of bleach.
Melody Johnson is detained and the judge rules that she posed a flight risk because she had recently purchased a house in the Philippines.
She has not entered a plea and is due back in court on November 6.
She was indicted by a grand jury on charges of attempted first-degree murder, attempted aggravated assault and poisoning food or drink.
Johnson was stationed in Germany for work in March 2023 when he thought his coffee was starting to taste “very bad.”
His wife made his coffee the night before, so in the morning all he had to do was turn on the machine.

According to the report, he continued to pretend to drink the coffee but did not file a report until he returned to Davis Monthan Air Force Base in the US in July.
After collecting all the footage, Johnson went back to the police and showed them his evidence.
Police then arrested Melody at the home and a search warrant reported that the coffee pot smelled of bleach.
The documents also revealed that the husband believed she was trying to kill him “to collect death benefits.”
