An 18-year-old Natrona County woman is accused of trying to kill her step mother with eye drops. 
 
Police say Alex Jennings told them she sneaked the contents of 15 bottles of visine eye drops into her stepmother's coffee and tea over a four month period. The stepmother was hospitalized twice for difficulty breathing and other symptoms, before she confronted Jennings. 
 
Court documents says Jennings was upset at her stepmother for comments she made about a boyfriend. 
 
Jennings faces aggravated assault charges.
