Associated Press

ASHTABULA, OHIO: The Ohio Attorney General’s Office is taking over the case of a county judge whose wife of 45 years allegedly tried to poison him with antifreeze.

Attorney General Mike DeWine will appoint an outside prosecutor and the state Supreme Court will pick a judge to preside over the case in Ashtabula, in the far northeastern corner of the state.

Carla Hague — the 71-year-old wife of Ashtabula County Common Pleas Juvenile-Probate Judge Charles Hague — was charged this week with trying to poison him with antifreeze in September. Officials say the case is going to a grand jury, and she could be charged with attempted murder.

Ashtabula County, with about 100,000 people, is located along the Interstate 90 corridor between Cleveland and Erie, Pa.
