A New Jersey Chemist convicted of poisoning her husband to keep him from divorcing her was sentenced to life in prison today. Titanle Li used thallium to poison her husband Xiaoye Wang in 2010. Thallium is a tasteless, highly deadly poison that is difficult to detect in lab tests, the Associated Press reports. Li, who worked at Bristol-Myers Squibb, had been researching the effect of Thallium on Humans. Wang checked into the hospital with flu-like symptoms but quickly fell into a coma and died with Li at his side. Prosecutors say that Li documented her husband’s symptoms and speculated about his death in a journal she kept at the time. She wrote about how she would get away with murder. “This was planned, calculated and committed in a cruel and depraved manner,” state Superior Court Judge Michael Toto said in handing down the sentence.
This story is significant because a man was poisoned and killed by his own wife.
The impact is that everyone is now informed on what Thallium is.

    Be consistent: Is thallium capitalized?

    I agree with your significance and impact.
