SYDNEY, N.S. — A bail hearing in the case of a woman nicknamed the “Internet Black Widow” has been adjourned until Friday morning.
A hearing had been scheduled for today in Sydney for Melissa Ann Weeks.
The 77-year-old woman is charged with attempted murder and administering a noxious substance.
The charges were laid after Weeks’s 75-year-old husband fell ill at a bed and breakfast in North Sydney.
Weeks was convicted of manslaughter in 1992 in the death of a previous husband who she drugged and ran over twice with a car.
She also has convictions for fraud and forgery involving men she had relationships with.
