Pakistani bride was arrested after milk she had poisoned in order to kill her husband was made into a yogurt drink that inadvertently killed 17 of her extended family members, according to the Associated Press.

District police chief Sohail Habib Tajak said that Aasia Bibi, 21, was married against her will in September in a village near the remote town of Ali Pur in Pakistan.

In a court appearance on Tuesday, Bibi told reporters that she was furious over her parents' decision to marry her to a man she did not wish to wed.

"I repeatedly asked my parents not to marry me against my will as my religion, Islam, also allows me to choose the man of my choice for marriage but my parents rejected all of my pleas and they married me to a relative," Bibi said, according to the Associated Press.

Her husband refused to drink it, but Bibi's mother-in-law later spotted the tainted beverage and used it to make lassi, a traditional yogurt-based drink, which she then served to 27 people.
