A Brooklyn woman concocted a twisted plot to kill the unborn child of her husband’s pregnant mistress — duping her into taking medicine that could make her lose her baby, police said yesterday.
Even after the victim gave birth early because of the toxic drug, Kisha Jones, 31, continued her evil scheme by trying to feed suspicious milk to the baby in the neonatal intensive care unit, sources say.
The bizarre tale unfolded in October, when Jones became enraged after she learned her hubby, Anthony, was cheating and had sired a baby with his lover, Monique Hunter, 25, of Flatbush, cops said.
Late that month, Jones allegedly obtained a doctor's prescription pad and tricked the seven-months-pregnant Hunter into taking a drug used to induce abortion.
Cops said Jones called Hunter using an electronic gadget that transmits bogus phone numbers to caller-ID devices, allowing her to pretend to be the assistant of the woman's doctor.
"I got a call from my doctor's office telling me to pick up a prescription at King's Pharmacy," Hunter, a nursing student at the Borough of Manhattan Community College, told The Post. "I knew something was suspicious because King's Pharmacy was not my normal pharmacy. But I didn't think anything of it."
The new mom said that she thought the call from Jones was legitimate because her doctor's number appeared on her caller-ID. She also was expecting to get a refill of a drug for her cervix.
"I didn't go and pick it up immediately," she said. "A week later I received another phone call telling me to pick up my prescription, so I went and picked it up and I took my pill."
But instead of the drug she expected, Hunter wound up getting a dose of the abortion-causing pill Cytotec, which the unsuspecting mother ingested on Oct. 27. She immediately went into labor and was rushed to Kings County Hospital, where the baby was delivered and put into the neonatal ICU.
Fortunately, the boy was born healthy and she named him Anthony Jones Jr. after his father.
But Jones' alleged plot didn't end there. Sources said she continued to target the innocent infant.
On Nov. 3, she allegedly called the hospital posing as the boy's mother, telling the staff she had pumped breast milk at home and wanted it given to the baby.
Later that day, a man showed up with two 20-ounce water bottles that purportedly contained the milk. Hospital staff immediately became suspicious because the liquid did not have the consistency of breast milk, and they called cops.
Police initially thought Hunter was targeting her own baby. But after investigating the case, cops followed a trail back to Jones, who herself has a few children with her husband, including a baby.
The suspect was arrested Thursday and charged with reckless endangerment, forgery of a prescription, criminal impersonation and attempted abortion, police said.
Police said Jones' husband had no role in the plot, though they were looking for the man who delivered the milk.
