A Southers California woman was accused of poisoning her husband after she had been caught spiking his lemonade multiple times with Drano.

Jack Chen, 53, told the New York Post his wife of a decade, Yue “Emily” Yu, allegedly put the poison in his drinks at least three times in July.

After Chen started becoming very ill he was suspicious of his wife. He decided to set up a nanny cam in the kitchen to spy on her.

Footage captured Yu pouring liquid from a large plastic bottle into her husband's lemonade. Chen had already been feeling ill for a few months before he reported the alleged poisoning to Irvine Police on Thursday.

“This video (from July 18) shows me taking a sip of my still-hot lemonade, covering my cup with Saran wrap, and then of Emily taking the Draino (sic) from under the sink, removing the covering to pour the Draino, and then replacing the cellophane and putting the Draino (sic) back,” Chen said in his statement.

The marriage and parenting were not good. Chen reported that his wife and mother-in-law had been verbally, physically, and emotionally abusive to him and their two kids, who are 8 and 7 years old.

“When Emily gets frustrated and yells at the children, she’ll commonly use a Chinese phrase that translates to ‘go die!’ She also says to the children, ‘your head has a problem, ‘your head is sick, ‘go f–k yourself,’ ‘f–king idiot,’ ‘stupid a–hole,’ and ‘get the f–k out of my way.’"

Chen was granted a temporary restrain to which his wife had to stay 100 yards away from her children.

“Emily would call me a ‘f–king asshole’ and other insults,” Chen wrote in his declaration. “Currently she minimizes my existence by telling the children in front of me, ‘tell him’ to do something without addressing me. She would have the children tell me to do menial tasks for her."

“Emily’s parenting, if you could call it that, revolves around yelling, insulting, verbally abusing, hitting, pushing, pulling, and being emotionally abusive,” said Chen.

Yu was released on Friday after posting bond. No charges have been filed against Yu.

Irvine Police Lt. Bill Bingham told The New York Post, “We do believe this is a domestic-related incident. There’s nothing that we discovered that has caused us concern for the patients that Yu. treated.”

Yu’s attorney told The New York Post his client “absolutely and unequivocally” denies poisoning her husband and abusing him and their children.

Chen is now fighting for full custody of his two kids in court. He has stepped away from his radiologist job to help the kids and himself deal with the stress that has been caused.

Chen is “feeling a certain amount of relief” and his health is slowly getting better.
