Police: Michigan father forces young children to drink deadly cocktail of drugs and chemicals...

WY (WOOD) -- A father was arraigned Thursday for allegedly trying to poison his children by making them drink a liquid that included brake fluid from sippy cups.

Jose Enrique Oliva-Rosa was denied bond on the charges lodged against him.

On Tuesday, Oliva-Rose's wife filed a person protection order against him, calling him "controlling, jealous and volatile."

About 1 1/2 hours later, Wyoming police went to his home on Milan SW after a 911 call that he was going to kill his children and then stab himself. It's not clear who made that emergency call.

The children, a 6-year-old girl and 2-year-old boy, were with Oliva-Rosa in the living room.

Court documents show he poisoned his kids so he could "take them with him."

The kids ingested a cocktail of brake fluid, penetrating fluid, ibuprofen and DayQuil.

"The children knew something was wrong, and they knew they did not want to drink or consume any of that liquid," Wyoming Capt. Brad Schutter told 24 Hour News 8. "So, they knew what dad was doing was wrong."

Oliva-Rosa drank more of the liquid than his children.

Police had to break in to the home, but were able to take Oliva-Rose into custody without incident.

They were all taken to a hospital for treatment. The children were evaluated and then released to their mother, who was not living with the family at the Wyoming house.

Oliva-Rosa, 25, stayed in the hospital overnight.

His wife of five years told court officials she was afraid he could snap. She left him last week, neighbors told 24 Hour News 8, moving her belongings out little by little.

"He's not handling this like a civilized person," she wrote in the PPO. "He is coming to my job, standing on his knees, blocking traffic on the main road."

Oliva-Rosa harassed his wife, she says in the order, as he has done everything from following her, to badgering her with text messages and threatening to kill her.

He is being held in jail on two counts of attempted murder, two counts of poisoning and two counts of felony child abuse.

He is scheduled to be in court June 9. Oliva-Rose has no history of violence against his children, police said.
