Sheriff's deputies responded to the Boulder Community Hospital after learning a loss of cell phone privileges prompted a pre-teen girl to go to extremes.
The girl admitted to police that she spiked her mom's drinks with bleach in an attempt to kill her.
It all started when the girl's mother noticed a bleach smell in her smoothie a couple days earlier.
"She thought that her daughter had maybe just cleaned the glass and that there was still bleach left in it. Then she started feeling sick."
The sickness passed, but then she noticed that bleach smell again coming from a pitcher of water.
"When she smelled the bleach in the carafe she confronted her daughter and her daughter told her that she was trying to kill her for taking her iPhone."
The girl was arrested on two counts of attempted first degree murder and taken to the county's juvenile detention center.
