Fayetteville, N.C. A Fayetteville teen was arrested Thursday and accused of spiking her grandmother's Easter dinner with insecticide, according to an arrest warrant.
Tyt'ana Lisa-Nicole Johnson, 17, of 206 Harrison St., was charged with two counts of attempted first-degree murder. She was being held Friday in the Cumberland County jail under a $500,000 bond.
According to a warrant, Johnson tried to kill Gaylon Moody on Sunday by pouring insecticide and termite killer into a pot of collard greens cooking on the stove, knowing that Moody planned to eat them.
Moody said it was payback after she confiscated her granddaughter's cellphone for a week.
"She said, 'Mr. Evans, I didnt mean to make you sick. I was trying to get back at grandma,'" Evans said. "They got her locked up, but she needs help. Seriously, something's wrong with her. People dont do that over cellphones."
Moody and Evans were able to laugh at the episode on Friday, noting that Evans enjoyed the collards so much he grabbed a second helping.
"That was good. I was loving it," he said. "Even with the stuff on it."
Johnson, a junior and an honor roll student at Terry Sanford High School, was ordered to stay away from Moody and Evens if she posts bond. She would go into the custody of the Cumberland County Department of Social Services.

Isn’t it supposed to be racist to assume that black people eat collard greens?
What kind of sicko would poison their grandmother?
I’ve come to the conclusion that some people are born without a soul.
It's racis to assume only black people eat collard greens.
If Obama had a niece.
everyone’s born with a soul.
what you’re seeing is someone who’s conscience is no longer functioning.
Share the recipe.
I’ve heard of “gator gotcha granny” but this is something else
Just yesterday a friend told me half jokingly that if he tried to take his daughter’s phone away she would “Kill us in our sleep or run away”.
I’m afraid that such behavior from kids is all too common.
An evil soul anyway. I wonder if some souls are constitutionally beyond redemption.
Oh come on! Every black kid does this. That’s how they get money for crack and guns!! Society is to blame! Not this innocent 560 pound child!
That was Polk not collard greens... As in “Polk Salad Anne”.
The market we shop at has Collard greens, Mustard greens and Turnip greens. We buy them often even though their expensive. We really like them.
we’ve had kids kill their parents and siblings because they took away a cd or record.
the phones and crap they’re addicted to. problem is adults give them the phones. let the kids pay for them themselves and see if they can earn them. don’t let them have the phones in the first place. don’t turn em into addicts that can’t function like a normal person without their drug (phone).
You got that right! Nothing like a big mess of greens and some ham hocks with crackling. Yummy.
Seems to get worse the more they have.
I’ll admit, I’d be jonesin if I lost the computer but I would get over it and go looking for a library or even start a book trading club with my neighbors. Knowing my neighbors, we’d probably start a private library of our own.
