      OH attorney general takes judge antifreeze poisoning case

      Officials say the case is going to a grand jury, and she could be charged with attempted murder.

      ASHTABULA, Ohio (AP) - 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 is the 71-year-old wife of an Ashtabula County Common Pleas Court judge. Charles Hauge is a judge in the probate and juvenile court divisions.


      The wife 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.
