Connecticut authorities have alleged that a woman they took into custody for suspicion of driving while intoxicated was the result of her drinking vanilla extract.

50-year-old Stefanie Warner-Grise was reportedly out in her vehicle on Wednesday when her car was seen stopped in the middle of an intersection.

Someone called 911 to report that they saw a woman with closed eyes behind the wheel, and the car was not in motion though it was sitting in the center of the road. When the authorities responded they reportedly discovered Warner-Grise was the driver of the automobile.

Richard Dabate, a 40 year old man from Connecticut, was charged with the alleged murder of his wife after the police found electronic evidence which included data from her Fitbit fitness tracker.

In December 2015, Dabate told the police that he left his home to go to work at 8:30 a.m., but then received an alert from his home security system, that the alarm had been activated. Dabate claimed to have emailed his boss from his car to let him know he would be late for work. But, the evidence had indicated that the alarm had not been activated, and that Dabate had actually emailed his boss from his laptop at home. Dabate also allegedly checked the time of his wife’s exercise class from his laptop.

Dabate had told police that he was unable to stop an intruder from shooting and killing his wife after she had returned home from her exercise class. The Fitbit data records, however, told a different story. The data showed Connie Dabate’s movement up until 10:15 a.m. on the day she was killed in December 2015, almost an hour after Richard Dabate claimed she had died. Dabate claimed that he confronted an intruder after he returned to his home around 9 a.m. and that his wife returned home during the confrontation.
