Liberty mother found guilty of poisoning twin daughters

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - A Liberty mother has been convicted of trying to poison her twin infant girls.

Prosecutors say in 2012, Gloria Jones mixed rubbing alcohol with milk in the girls’ sippy cups.

The twins went to the hospital for poisoning.

Jones later confessed, saying the girls were whiny and she hoped it would calm them down.

The twins are now 3 years old and don’t appear to have any lasting effects.

The jury recommended up to five years in prison. A judge will decide that later this summer.
