One day Cheri found a canister hidden in the bathroom. It was filled with a strange green powder. "I thought, 'Oh my God," she says. "It was the same color I had been noticing in my food and in my clothing." That powder—which Harald not only put in Cheri's food, water and clothing, but also on the condoms they used when they had sex—was rat poison.
Before Harald returned home Cheri got a protection order, hired an attorney, filed for divorce and changed the locks on her house. When she confronted Harald, he confessed to everything while she secretly recorded the call.
Harald was arrested and pleaded guilty to four counts of contaminating a substance for consumption. He's currently serving 10 years in prison.
