By KMVT News

Chandler, Arizona (CNN) An Arizona nurse is facing attempted murder charges after police say she injected feces-laced fluid into her husband's IV.

Police say it happened in a hospital recovery room after Rosemary Vogel's husband had surgery last week.

The IV pump alarm reportedly sounded... Then a nurse saw Vogel handling the equipment.

Brown liquid was seen in the line... And that's when 911 was called.
Police say nurses immediately removed the IV from the 66-year-old man's arm.

Tests later confirmed the presence of fecal matter in the line.

Rosemary Vogel is charged with vulnerable adult abuse and first-degree attempted murder charges.
