Ashtabula | Woman accused in antifreeze murder released

ASHTABULA -- County court records show that Teresa Kotomski, 53, the Conneaut woman accused of poisoning her husband Raymond, 65, back in 2009, posted her $250,000 bond today following her arraignment.

Last week a grand jury indicted Kotomski on a charge of murder in connection with a 2009 anti-freeze poisoning death.

She faces murder and contaminating a substance for human consumption charges in the death of her husband.

Police found his body in his Pierpont home on August 13, 2009.

An autopsy determined he died of complications from ethylene glycol toxicity.

Her husband of five years, he died at a hospital three days after he was found unconscious in his Pierpont home. He had three grown children with his former wife of 36 years.

"Officers and prosecutors have put a tremendous amount of work into this investigation, and they should be commended for the hard work and dedication that has led to the Grand Jury returning this indictment," said Attorney General Mike DeWine.

His death was first ruled "undetermined," but, in 2012 BCI was asked to investigate and determined someone intentionally poisoned him with antifreeze.

The case was investigated jointly by the Attorney General's Office and the Ashtabula County Sheriff.
