A woman investigators believe tried to kill her husband with insulin made an appearance in court Monday. In August, 33-year-old Theresa Lynn Brady was arrested and charged with attempted murder of her husband, James Brady. She has been behind bars ever since.
Monday Theresa waived her right to a preliminary hearing. Her case will now go to the grand jury on December 3.
Police say on the morning of August 21, Theresa attempted to inject James with a needle full of insulin to try to kill him.
According to search warrants, James, an Albemarle County Fire & Rescue captain, woke up to the feeling of a needle prick. When he confronted Theresa, two syringes allegedly fell from her pocket. James had recently been treated at a hospital for an unknown illness, after a dramatic weight loss and uncontrolled vomiting. Theresa works in the medical field.
Theresa Brady was at Albemarle County Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court for the brief hearing Monday. It lasted about three minutes, and she had nothing to say during it. She has opted to stay behind bars.
