    Can cough syrup make you murder a person?

    This Man Told 911 He Took Too Much Cold Medicine Then Killed His Wife

    Matthew James Phelps called 911 on Friday to say that he woke up and found his wife stabbed to death. He has been charged with murder.

    Yes, Triple C can cause hallucinations, but I doubt it will limit culpability for his actions. This will probably be a manslaughter/unintentional murder case unless they can provide some evidence of premeditation. The 911 call at your link is horrifying.

    A likely story.

    Do some digging. Bet there's a girlfriend somewhere. And/or an insurance policy.

    I took Coricidin as a young teenager and apparently said and did some weird shit that alarmed my parents. I never took it again.

    There's a very interesting thread on websleuths about this. Apparently, this is his second marriage - the first in 2011 and divorced in 2014. Divorce decree is sealed per the WS thread. The victim's obit was in her maiden name and no mention of the husband at all. I'm thinking things will come out about the marriage that make it more likely that this was domestic violence and not an accident.

    Nancy Grace would be all over this one if she was still around.
