Brian Mann, 34, was charged with attempted murder for “intentionally” causing his wife Hannah Pettey, 24, to “unwittingly ingest particles of lead” while the couple was going through a divorce, according to court documents obtained by WHNT.

Judge Charles Elliott said “so much as a speeding ticket” would result in a rearrest, according to court documents.
