A Missouri woman is accused of spiking her husband's drink with chemicals. 

The Laclede County Sheriff's Office says 47-year-old Michelle Peters has been charged with first-degree domestic assault and armed criminal action.

Deputies believed she secretly put the herbicide Roundup in her husband's Mountain Dew several times between May and June of this year. 

Authorities said she also spiked his drink with insecticide.

Deputies said the husband suspected his soda was spiked after falling sick. He then provided surveillance video to authorities that reportedly showed his wife tampering with his Mountain Dew stored in a garage refrigerator. 

The husband told authorities he was the only one in the household who drank Mountain Dew and kept it in the garage refrigerator. 

Peters was arrested and later was being held in the Laclede County Detention Center with no bond.  

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, glyphosate, which is contained in Roundup, can cause nausea and vomiting. It can be very irritating if it is left on your skin or eyes.
