A 12-year-old Colorado girl is accused of trying to kill her mother with bleach after she took away her iPhone.

The girl, who has not been identified, was detained Friday at the Boulder County Juvenile Center. The Boulder County Sheriff's Office was first notified of the alleged crime on March 6.

The sheriff's office says the girl first tried to kill her mother on March 2 by putting bleach into her breakfast smoothie. The mother told police she noticed an odor of bleach in the drink, and thought her daughter had cleaned the glass before making the beverage, and didn't rinse the bleach out.

Later in the week, the BCSO says the girl poured bleach into a water carafe her mother kept in her bedroom.
