St. Mary's County Sheriff Department Patrol Officers received a complaint that Renee Bossee (age 45 of Mechanicsville) was attempting to kill her former husband Gary Bossee. Although the couple was divorced, they continued to live together. Beginning in the last week of May 2006, Ms. Bossee allegedly began placing different pills into the victim's drinks. The pills were both over the counter and prescribed. The suspect was allegedly attempting to cause illness that would lead to the victim's death. Recovered from the home was a bottle of stolen prescription medication and an over-the-counter banned substance.
Renee Bossee was arrested and charged with one count of Reckless Endangerment and one count of Second Degree Assault. Additional charges are pending a State's Attorney's Office and Grand Jury review.
