Harris County Assistant District Attorney Anthony Osso Case theory explained – Mason and his wife had separated in early 2022, but then in March they learned she was pregnant. Osso explained:

“My understanding is that it was not well received by (Herring). It came out in marriage counseling as well as later through text messages.

This was the third child of the couple. what was the problem?

in a probable cause affidavit written by Houston Police Department Designated Investigator a oteroit turns out catherine herring She had a fight with her husband over his affair, which led to separation. She was willing to work on the marriage anyway. But in a marriage counseling session, she tells him the news of her pregnancy, and he turns away. Otero wrote, according to court records obtained by oxygen,

“The complainant stated that the respondent had a negative reaction, and later that evening, he sent her text messages saying he was not happy about the pregnancy and did not know what to do.”

It is believed that Mason was planning to leave his wife for this other woman, but that Katherine was pregnant would “ruin his plans” and “make him look like a jerk.” very nice.

How did he get caught? That in itself is a wild story…

After reacting so badly to the pregnancy in the first place, Mason has apparently suddenly become a doting dad-to-be. Four days after learning of the pregnancy, they moved to live separately to go on a spring break trip with their children. During the vacation he “began talking about her hydration” and kept pushing her to drink more water. He started making sure she always finished her drink.

Catherine says she began to have doubts when he arrived at his new place right now to make her drink – after which she became violently ill. When blood started coming in place of diarrhoea, she went to the hospital. Thankfully she didn’t lose the baby. But he began to pay closer attention, and said he noticed either the liquid in the glasses was cloudy or that the seal of the orange juice he would give her had already been broken.

This mom was not going to take it lying down. Unbeknownst to her husband, she set up cameras around their new place to verify his suspicions. One day in April she caught him on camera cleaning and taking out the trash — which was extra sass because she said Mason “doesn’t do chores around the house.” After she left he checked the trash and found packaging for the Mexican version of the prescription drug Cytotec, which contains misoprostol. Her OBGYN explained that the drug “caused strong uterine contractions, miscarriage” — and that diarrhea and bleeding were side effects.

She went to the police with her complaint and gave urine samples to the police, which proved that she had consumed the drug. Investigators reviewed his security camera footage and, sure enough, caught Mason on camera, according to the affidavit, “preparing a drink in the kitchen, taking out the Ziploc bag, and emptying the contents into the drink.” He was arrested in May.

Catherine eventually gave birth to a premature baby, but thankfully the baby is said to be in good health. Mason was then charged with the new crime. Osso explained:

“It’s manipulative. It’s premeditated. The allegations we’re making against Mr. Herring, which we believe the evidence supports, are a very heinous act. To do this to someone who trusts you, It’s about taking advantage of that trust.

The 38-year-old is now out on bail and is expected back in court on December 2. His attorney released the following statement to the press:

“We know that the Grand Jury has returned these charges. That said, we are very much looking forward to our day in court and are absolutely confident that when the time comes to defend these charges, we will Will win in. Until that day comes, I don’t want to comment publicly.

Something tells us that he would have made an allegation for such deliberate poisoning or without overturning Roe. In any case, on this particular matter everyone should be able to agree – what a nonsense!
