Christiana Edmunds (sometimes spelt incorrectly as Christina) was responsible for a one-woman poisoning campaign in Brighton in the early 1870s. She was eventually caught and sentenced to death, but reprieved and sent to Broadmoor.
You can read a lot more about Christiana's 'death by chocolate' in 'Broadmoor Revealed'.
