A northeast Ohio judge's wife accused of trying to poison him with antifreeze has pleaded guilty to one count of felonious assault.
Carla Hague pleaded guilty Wednesday in Ashtabula County court after original charges of attempted murder and contaminating a substance were reduced.
WJW-TV in Cleveland (http://bit.ly/T7Rdwt ) reports the 71-year-old Hague said she thought if she put the chemical in her husband's drink, which court officials said was wine, he would stop drinking it.
She was sentenced to two years in prison, with release eligibility after six months.
A message was left with her attorney seeking comment.
