Woman Pleads Guilty In Poisoning Charge

A 40-year-old woman who plead guilty to poisoning and conspiracy to poison will be spending at least four years in prison.  Shanna Kota was sentenced to four to twenty-two and a half years in prison on Monday of this week.  Another woman, 22-year-old Sarah Prange will go to jury trial  May 21, on the same charges, as well as a charge of delivery of heroin.  The two were accused of spiking their recovery home manager’s macaroni and cheese with heroin.  Investigation began after the 38-year-old house manager from the recovery home heard rumors that the women were trying to get rid of her.  The victim thought her macaroni and cheese tasted off, and eventually discarded it.  She was treated at McLaren Port Huron Hospital where police collected evidence showing the woman had been poisoned.   Vision Quest Recovery operates the home where the alleged poisoning took place.  It is located in the 1200 block of Lapeer Avenue.  Prange is currently being held on a $100,000 bond.
