A woman has killed her ex-boyfriend and his intended wife after poisoning them with a ‘tampered box of chocolates’ just days before they were due to be married in Brazil.
The victims identified as Dione Quirino, 35, and Amanda Cassia Lopes, 27 were reported to have received a delivery of chocolates at home in Jaiba in the Brazilian state of Minas Gerais on Thursday, September 23 ahead of their weekend wedding.
The former lover out of jealousy poisoned and killed the young man, his new fiancee and their family dog just 3 days before their wedding.
Police said the couple reportedly had the chocolates after assuming they were an early wedding gift, not knowing they had ingested some kind of poison.
According to news site G1, a total of five people – the bride and groom-to-be, two other adults and one two-year-old – were poisoned by the chocolates and were hospitalised after falling sick.

Jealous ex-girlfriend arrested for poisoning her former partner, his new fiancee and killing the family dog just 3 days before their wedding.
The family dog was also given a sweet or two as a treat and the pet died as a result.
A woman whose name was not disclosed due to the ongoing investigation was arrested a day after the alleged poisoning incident on Friday. She was later identified by the police as the ex-girlfriend of the groom-to-be.
The police said that a taxi driver delivered the gift, consisting of chocolates and some glasses, that was addressed to the bride. Believing it was a wedding gift, the group tucked into the chocolates and also gave a few of the treats to a two-year-old and the family dog.
According to reports, the dog was the first to fall sick, and the pet later died from the unidentified poison, while all five people were taken to the hospital after experiencing severe sickness.
After interviewing the victims and other family members, the police identified the groom’s ex-partner as the main suspect.
According to their statements, the woman was never able to accept the end of the relationship or that her ex had found happiness with someone else.
A police statement said that authorities are reviewing a wealth of information including CCTV footage and camera phone footage, and are conducting analyses of the chocolates, the victims’ stool samples and the contents of the deceased dog’s digestive tract to determine the cause of its death.
Delegate Marconi Vieira has been named as the legal representation for the woman, who was arrested by police on Friday, September 24 at her residence.
