An Ohio county judge’s wife of 45 years has been charged with poisoning him with antifreeze. An antifreeze is a chemical additive which lowers the freezing point of a water based liquid. Antifreezes are commonly used for de-icing. Carla Hague, the 71-year-old wife of Ashtabula County Juvenile-Probate Judge Charles Hague, was charged Monday December 2, 2013 with felonious assault, according to Municipal Court records. She also will face an attempted murder charge, said spokesman Sheriff William R. Johnson.

Ohio’s Ashtabula County, with about 100,000 people, is located along the Interstate 90 corridor between Cleveland and Erie, Pennsylvania. The 20 year judge, Charles Hague was hospitalized September 15 at the Cleveland Clinic and has been on medical leave since September, according to the Daily Herald. The judge has been serving on the bench since 1993.


According to ABC News, no court date has been set, the Municipal Court bailiff said, and no attorney was listed for her on the court docket. The retired nurse is currently being held in a jail in adjacent Lake County. Sheriff Johnson said he believes the judge has been checking in with his staff periodically. These poisoning allegations came 2 1/2 weeks after a Cleveland woman, Holly McFeeture, was sentenced to life in prison for killing her fiancé by putting antifreeze in his iced tea.
