COLFAX, Wash. -

A Washington State University grad student has been arrested for allegedly trying to poison his wife while she was sleeping.

Jacob Forster, 32, has been arrested on a charge of attempted 1st degree Murder for the March 27 incident, where he allegedly attempted to poison his wife of six years as she slept in the couple's Uniontown home.

The victim reported the incident to authorities last week, and investigators gathered enough information to take Forster into custody on the attempted murder charge.

Forster, currently being held in the Whitman County Jail, is scheduled to make a first appearance in Whitman County Superior Court Wednesday.
