Police issued a warrant for an IN woman who attempted to kill her niece by mixing crushed pills into breast milk.

The suspect's alleged plan was to crush Excedrin tablets and put the powder into a bottle in the refrigerator, where the baby's mother kept breast milk.

The 11-week-old baby wasn't injured, but court documents say the milk contained the equivalent of nine Excedrin tablets or capsules, enough to kill an adult.

According to the affidavit for probable cause, the investigation began in January of this year after Rodriguez-Miranda's grandmother read a text message conversation between her daughter and her daughter's boyfriend on her cell phone. Police believe the 19-year-old woman fled to MI after learning she was under investigation in the alleged January poisoning attempt.

In other texts, she wrote "I hope she dies" and told her boyfriend that, "I thought it was amusing that I don't have an ounce of guilt". She immediately went on to check the bottles in the refrigerator and found one darker than the other with some residue settled in it. The mortar and pestle had a white powdery substance in it, court documents said.

Rodriguez-Miranda, of the 400 block of East Taber Street, wondered in one of her texts what happened. In the text messages, she allegedly discussed using acetaminophen and sleeping pills to kill the child because the family had made a decision to extend their stay in the home. "I thought it was amusing that I don't have an ounce of guilt".

Although neither bottles were used to feed the child, she took the baby and the mother to the emergency room anyway to check for any poisoning.

"Why didn't that baby die dude thats dumb", Rodriguez-Miranda said later in a text message.

Police have issued an arrest warrant for an IN woman accused of attempting to kill her brother's newborn baby with poisoned breast milk. "I don't feel bad about it bc she was destined to grow up [expletive] or be abused", she allegedly wrote.

The substance was later recognized as containing acetaminophen, caffeine and headache medicine, substances in Excedrin. Rodriguez-Miranda told her boyfriend she'd have no remorse if the baby died, court records said.

Rodriguez-Miranda's mother instructed her daughter to be at the home to speak to police after the incident.
