FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. -- A woman is recovering after police say her teenage granddaughter poisoned her food on Easter Sunday.

The Fayetteville Police Department tells NBC Charllote that Tyt'ana Lisa-Nicole Johnson, 17, put insecticide in her collard greens.
 
Gaylon Moody, 51, was at church when it happened.
 
Her friend also ate the greens. They reported feeling numb. Both were treated at Cape Fear Valley Medical Center.
 
Doctors originally believed it was a stomach virus but then realized this was a case of food poisoning.
 
Johnson admitted to the crime, according to police. She is charged with two counts of attempted first-degree murder. She was booked into the Cumberland County jail under a $500,000 bond.
 
The Fayetteville Observer reports Johnson was mad about Moody taking away her cell phone.
