A Michigan man has been convicted of first-degree murder in the bizarre poisoned-cereal killing of his wife.

Christina Ann Thompson Harris, 36, died in 2014 of a heroin overdose. Initially, detectives pegged her death as accidental.

But when cops tested the breast milk the mother-of-two stored in the fridge to feed her eight-month-old baby, they determined that she was not a drug user.

Genesee County Prosecutor David Leyton said it was the first time in Michigan that breast milk was used as evidence in a criminal case.

Detectives determined that money was the motive. Her husband, Jason Thomas Harris, stood to receive a $120,000 life insurance jackpot.

In addition, investigators learned that he had been cavorting and texting other women for months. The brazen love rat even had one of the women move into the family home just two weeks after his wife died.

Surprisingly, his own siblings told detectives that their bad brother had been talking about taking his wife off the board before he laced his wife’s cereal with the lethal amount of heroin.

“This was a very tragic case and my heart goes out to the family and friends of Christina Harris for their terrible loss,” Leyton said in a statement.

“The circumstances of this case make for a unique story and garner headlines in the media, but at the core of it a family is mourning the loss of their loved one and I can only hope that today’s verdict will help them with closure.”

Jason Harris faces life in prison when he’s sentenced on Dec. 10 for first-degree murder, solicitation of murder and delivery of a controlled substance causing death.
