CLEVELAND — A Cleveland woman accused of killing her fiance with antifreeze entered a not guilty plea on Monday.

Holly McFeeture, 34, faces charges of aggravated murder and contaminating a substance for human consumption or use.

Her bond was set at $500,000.

According to the Cuyahoga County prosecutor’s office, McFeeture added antifreeze to Matthew Podolak’s tea, which he drank on a daily basis.

It allegedly occurred in 2006 at the couple’s home on Archmere Avenue in Cleveland, where they lived with their two children, ages two and six months, and an eight year old from McFeeture’s previous relationship.

Podolak, 31, experienced extreme pain, disorientation and vomiting before he died.

His death was not ruled a homicide until six years later when a tip led the Cleveland Police to additional evidence.

McFeeture was arrested on July 26, 2012.

A pretrial was scheduled for Aug. 6.
