ASHTABULA, Ohio (AP) - An Ohio county judge's wife of 45 years has been charged with poisoning him with antifreeze.
Carla Hague is the wife of Ashtabula County Common Pleas Juvenile-Probate Judge Charles Hague. According to Municipal Court records, she was charged Monday with felonious assault.
Sheriff William R. Johnson says she also will face an attempted murder charge. The 71-year-old Hague is being held in jail in adjacent Lake County.
No court date has been set, and no attorney was listed for her on the court docket.
The (Ashtabula) Star-Beacon reports Charles Hague was hospitalized Sept. 15 at the Cleveland Clinic and has been on medical leave since September. Johnson said he believes the judge has been checking in with his staff periodically.
The judge has been on the bench since 1993.
