A radiologist in California claims he has video proof of his dermatologist wife poisoning his drinks with deadly household chemicals on many instances after he suffered internal injuries and hid cameras in their kitchen.
Last Monday, Irvine police arrested 45-year-old dermatologist Dr. Yue Yu, better known as Emily, on accusations of poisoning. According to the Orange County District Attorney’s Office, she has not yet been officially charged.
Her 53-year-old husband, Dr. Jack Chen, applied for an order of protection on Friday.
He is afraid of being in the same residence and in the presence of respondent because of respondent’s recorded efforts to poison him with Drano, Chen writes in his request for a domestic violence restraining order.
Drano is a brand-name chemical drain cleaner that, according to the US government, is “extremely harmful” if swallowed, breathed, or comes into contact with the skin or eyes.
He has footage of her dumping Draino (sic) retrieved from beneath their kitchen sink and pouring it into her lemonade (he drinks it hot) on three different occasions, he stated in a plea to the court.
According to the lawsuit, Chen installed the cameras after becoming skeptical in March and April after finding “a chemical taste” in his lemonade and being diagnosed with ulcers, gastritis, and esophagitis.
He said that on one occasion, he covered his drink with plastic wrap, which she reportedly pulled off, poisoned the drink, and returned.
The couple married on July 4, 2012, and shortly had 2 kids, a girl and a boy who are now 8 and 7, respectively, according to the application.
He grew worried about Emily’s conduct after the kids were born, Chen stated.
He said that at one time, she wanted a massage, which he rejected since he was unwell. She walked on his head until he did – and then she started concealing money from him, he said in the petition.
Yuqin “Amy” Gu, his wife and mother-in-law, he alleged, verbally and emotionally tortured him for years, as well as demeaned and segregated the kids from their relatives and friends.
The kids are confined in their own little bubble, Chen wrote, with only four family members: Emily, Amy, [and the two youngsters. He is neglected and not acknowledged as a part of the family. For fear of upsetting Emily, the kids left his name off their letters to Santa.
In his restraining order application, he also requests exclusive custody of the children.
Yu’s attorney, David Wohl, termed the charges “ridiculous” and said they were prompted by the couple’s recent divorce filing and child custody dispute.
Ms. Emily Yu strongly and utterly rejects ever trying to poison her husband or anybody else, he said in a statement on Tuesday. As a well-respected doctor, her purpose has always been to assist individuals, never to hurt them. As a result, she firmly disputes her husband’s charges of emotionally and physically assaulting him and their kids.
According to the Orange County District Attorney’s Office, Yu secured $30,000 bail on Friday and was freed. She is scheduled to appear in court again on November 3.
They are analyzing the evidence in the case to determine whether any charges can be proven beyond a reasonable doubt, said a DA’s office representative on Tuesday.
