CLEVELAND -- A Cleveland woman who coaches youth baseball has been accused of killing the father of their two children by poisoning his iced tea with antifreeze six years ago.

The Plain Dealer (http://bit.ly/POQwTD) reports that 34-year-old Holly McFeeture was indicted earlier this week. Prosecutors say she killed her fiance, Matthew Podolak, by putting antifreeze in his raspberry tea over weeks and possibly months, because she wanted to end the relationship.

Assistant County Prosecutor Brian McDonough said the manner of Podolak's death remained undetermined until March 2010 when the coroner ruled the death a homicide based on a tip received by Cleveland police. That information ruled out suicide or accidental death.

McFeeture was scheduled to be arraigned Friday morning.
