A dermatologist in Irvine, California, was arrested Thursday on suspicion of poisoning her husband, police said.

A man reported that he believed he was being poisoned by his wife of 10 years after he grew ill over the course of a month. He also provided video evidence supporting the claim to authorities, police said in a statement.

His wife, Yue Yu, 45, was arrested Thursday after investigators interviewed her and searched the couple’s home. Records show she was released from Orange County Jail after her $30,000 bail was posted on Friday evening. She is due to appear in court today. 

Her husband “sustained significant internal injuries but is expected to recover,” police said. The OC Register reported that the husband set up secret cameras to record the evidence shared with police. 

Yu attended medical school at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri, according to her office’s website, and now works as a specialist in dermatology in the city of Mission Viejo.

The hospital affiliated with Yu, Providence Mission, issued a statement saying they were aware of the arrest and are working with authorities.

“This incident is a domestic matter which occurred in Irvine, and we want to reassure our community that there has been no impact on our patients,” the hospital said.

The Los Angeles Times reported that Yu’s information appeared to be removed from the hospital’s website on Sunday. 

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
