Queens woman arrested for allegedly poisoning husband’s coffee with boric acid

A Queens woman has been busted for allegedly poisoning her husband of 11 years with boric acid — after he caught her on video slipping the insecticide into his morning coffee, police sources told The Post.

Suncha Tinevra, 70, is charged with attempted manslaughter and assault for allegedly trying to sicken her hubby, Robert Baron, at their Oakland Gardens apartment.

Earlier this week, Baron, 63, walked into the 111th Precinct near their home to report his twisted wife, police sources said.

The sickened spouse told cops that he noticed his food tasted funny if he left it out and that he felt sick after meals. He also reported feeling overly tired and sleeping as much as 15 hours.

So Baron installed a camera in the kitchen near his medication — which allegedly caught Tinevra dumping boric acid, a known cockroach killer, into the coffee pot around 9 a.m. Tuesday.

Tinevra was arrested Thursday, with cops seizing the coffee pot, boric acid and tainted coffee as part of their investigation.

The couple has been married for 11 years, sources said.

Boric acid is used to kill pests like spiders, mites, roaches and can cause nausea, vomiting, stomachaches and diarrhea when consumed by humans, according to the National Pesticide Information Center.
