(CBS) CLEVELAND, Ohio - Members of an Ohio jury have found a woman guilty of poisoning and killing her boyfriend with antifreeze, according to CBS affiliate WOIO.

Holly McFeeture was also found guilty for violating substance for human consumption. 

According to the station, McFeeture, 35, poisoned 31-year-old Matthew Podolak in July of 2006 with antifreeze. This happened at the home where they lived with their two young children and an 8-year-old from a defendant's previous relationship.

Podolak allegedly began experiencing lower back pain and went to the doctor to be treated for kidney stones. On July 30th , the victim was reportedly transported to a hospital where his condition deteriorated with severe pain, disorientation and vomiting. He died the following day.

WOIO reports Podolak's death was ruled a homicide after Cleveland police gathered evidence.

McFeeture was arrested on July 26th 2012, six years after Podolak died, and released on bond on August 7th 2012.

The station reports that defense attorneys argued that Podolak drank the antifreeze on his own to kill himself.
