    "KITCHENER, Ont. -- An Ontario woman accused of poisoning two young kids in her care has now been charged in the alleged poisonings of six babies and toddlers, including a newborn, as well as an adult.

    Police said Friday the new charges come as a result of their investigation into the woman, who ran a home daycare in Kitchener, Ont., from 2009 to 2011.

    With the new charges, she is now accused in the alleged poisonings of eight children and a 32-year-old adult, all residents of Kitchener, or Guelph, Ont"

    "Christine Allen, 32, is now accused of nine counts each of criminal negligence causing bodily harm and administering a noxious substance.

    In March the accused was caring for a friend’s child who was taken to hospital with “serious physical symptoms” such as breathing difficulties, drowsiness and a decreased heart rate, police said in July when announcing the first batch of charges.

    The child recovered but had to be taken back to hospital at a later date with similar symptoms.

    Detectives discovered that another child who had been under the woman’s care in July 2010 had similar symptoms, and recovered after a few days in hospital, according to police.

    Police have said the daycare did not have a name and it’s not known how many children Allen cared for during the three years it operated".

    ."Police say the children involved in these latest cases range in age from one day old to two years.

    Allen now faces nine counts of criminal negligence causing bodily harm and nine counts of administering a noxious substance.

    Police accuse Allen of feeding eight children and one adult tetrahydrozoline, a drug found in over-the-counter eye care products that can cause serious illness if ingested.

    “It can cause symptoms such as drowsiness, low blood pressure, respiratory difficulties and a decreased heart rate and this is especially true for young children
    ,” said Alana Holtom, corporate communications manager with the WRPS. “The victims have recovered to a certain extent, but certainly their illnesses at the time were significant.”

    So was this a case of Munchausen's by Proxy using other people's children? Did she do it for vicarious attention? Or did it make her feel powerful? Or is she sadistic?

    I think this Christine Allen will still be very dangerous when she's released :( I hope she can't have any children of her own.
