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.
i use thge internet but i don’t have to be conected on it 24/7 or texting about bullcrap for hours. these kids don’t know what to do w/ themselves if they can’t be on their phones.
i am grateful i didn’t grow up with a cell phone. didn’t have one until my mid-thirties. i have a cheap pay-go phone and i almost never use it in case of emergencies. nobody knows my number.
Another obarry daughter! She looks like an “honor” student. Yeah, right. Aren’t they all?
Poisoned collards? Is nothing sacred any more?
An being raised to be a dependency slug.
I think it’s Poke Salad Annie?
Growing up poor has been a blessing. I have zero problem going without and making do.
If Obama had a niece.”
How exactly would he pronounce that name?
Knowing Obama it would be “hey, you”.
If Michelle had a niece.
Good southern folk of all colors enjoy eating collards.
Reminds me of “Cockeyed Jr. Gilmore” by Richard Pryor. He “waited for the collard green eatin’ bitch to go take a s...”
Black people don’t eat collard greens. Nobody does. They eat pork fat. The greens are just filler.
You’re thinking about polk salit.
She be ugly, but she not be dat ugly.
The address given is located about two blocks from Campbell Terrace - a public housing development.
Hm, didn’t know the Terry Sanford High School area went over that far.
It’s polk sallet.
Tony Joe White:
“I spent the first 18 years of my life down there,” said White. “My folks raised cotton and corn. There were lotsa times when there weren’t too much to eat, and I ain’t ashamed to admit that we’ve often whipped up a mess of polk sallet. Tastes alright too.. a bit like spinach.”
I misspelled it and had to look it up.
If it’s not cooked right it’s poisonous. My momma used to boil it and used the juice to treat poison oak. It didn’t work.
I was almost on a jury involving a double murder by a young white man here in Knox Co., TN where he murdered his girl friend’s parents at her behest. He had the most extraordinary appearance. He was slim, almost cadaverous, and had sunken eyes surrounded by large black circles, giving him the appearance of some vile, evil subhuman thing whose soul had long ago been sucked out by the Devil. My private nickname for him was “Rat Boy.” If he was born with a soul, it was sucked out of him shortly after he was hatched. Good news: even though I wasn’t on the jury, he was convicted and got life without parole.
My wife makes them. When I made them the first time I thought I had added too many leaves... I hadn’t. It settles. A lot.
BO would pronounce the name however the teleprompter told him to.
No - hey you is how I greet my friends. I was wondering how you pronounce Tyt’ana. Isn’t there an old, old, old English rule about changing y to i and adding ies?
Poisoning collard greens is really “adding injury to insult”. It’s like poisoning somebody’s citrate of magnesium or horehound cordial.
LOL! Way to funny. ;-)
“...Advantage: Mr. Bundy. Well Played, sir”...”
“Awaiting a rebuttal from the opposition”
I’ve always heard/seen “poke” as well—actually, from looking it up just now—it’s both. Either is correct.
Why an honor roll student of course! Dem folks gottsa has a difrent meanin a honor.
Granny took away her obamaphone.
I've had collard greens, and adding poison sounds like an improvement. Apparently he agrees.
