Woman Arrested For Drugging Boss' Coffee

Police say a woman has been arrested for allegedly slipping some tranquilizers into her boss' coffee because she felt "he needed to chill out."

Police say 24-year-old Erin Kelly admitted to detectives that she slipped the drugs into veteranarian John Duckett's drink. Officers say Duckett knew something was wrong shortly after drinking some of the coffee Tuesday morning.

Officers say Kelly cleaned the cages at the the Reynolds Road Animal Clinic.

A judge set Kelly's bond at $25,000 Friday. A Saline County jailer says Kelly was still being held Friday. Her next court appearance is scheduled for April 21.
