A Guruve woman is in soup after allegedly  food poisoning  her grandfather.

Alice Phiri is facing a murder charge and she was dragged to Guruve magistrate  court on Friday where she was not asked to plead for a murder charge before magistrate  Geraldine Mutsoto.

The state led by   Albert Charewa alleges on August 3 Phiri arrived at the now deceased Norman Chiputura's house.

Chiputura ordered Winnet Mapani cooked  sadza while Phiri  kapenta  and laced the  relish with poison which was in her handbag.

Phiri served the poisoned dish to her grandfather who ate and started vomitting blood whilst eating the food.

He cried while writhing in pain and Phiri fled as his granfather was in agony.

The grandfather sweated and froth was coming from his mouth.

Phiri was arrested in Mutorashanga where she was in hiding.
