NBC NEWS – A jury convicted Viktoria Nasyrova, 47, of Brooklyn, in February of attempted murder and other counts in the 2016 attempted poisoning. Nasyrova laced the cheesecake with a sedative that prosecutors described as a powerful toxin found only in Russia, which is where she is from, officials said.  The chemical was determined to be phenazepam, which is benzodiazepine developed by the Soviet Union, according to the district attorney’s office. The victim survived. But her Ukrainian passport and around $4,000 in cash were stolen. Nasyrova and the victim physically resembled each other, and prosecutors argued that Nasyrova poisoned her so she could steal her identity.
