New Italian Cocktail "The Gepetto" - Thwarted by SpyCam

A retired Italian carpenter has been arrested after his sleuthing wife suspected he was trying to poison her and set about trying to prove it with the help of a spy alarm clock bought on the internet.

The drama began in February in the northern Italian town of Dalmine, where the couple had reportedly lived for almost 40 years. The 61-year-old woman grew suspicious when some water brought to her by her husband created a burning sensation in her mouth.

The woman, who has not been named, sent it off for tests in a laboratory, which, when they came back, revealed the presence of hydrochloric acid.

Perturbed, the woman became even more worried when she found a bottle among her husband's things that had no label on it and was filled with a clear liquid. She sent that off to be analyzed, as well, and was told that it, too, was hydrochloric acid.

Police confirmed that she then took advice from relatives and bought a miniature video-camera-cum-alarm-clock, proceeding to film her husband in the kitchen. (more)
