Breaking Bad 'inspired murder plot by daughter', court told

A graphic designer attempted to kill her mother by putting poison in a drink in a plot inspired by US TV series Breaking Bad, a court has heard.

Kuntal Patel, 37, denies trying to murder her "controlling and selfish" magistrate mother Meena by putting abrin in her Diet Coke drink.

Prosecutors said she was angry that her mother had "forbade" her from marrying her boyfriend.
