No court dates been set in a case where the husband of Barbour County prosecutor Leckta Poling is charged with allegedly drugging her so he could check out her cell phone and email records.

A State Police investigator says Poling, the son of Barbour County delegate and House of Delegates Education Committee Chair Mary Poling, had doubts about his marriage.
The trooper says Poling, 42, admitted to putting a sedative in the prosecutor’s drink in 2012. The two have been married for 19 years.
Sgt. G.S. Petsko was assigned to investigate the case. He’s based in Fairmont. The special prosecutor in the case is Lea Anne Hawkins of Marion County and veteran Monongalia County Magistrate Hershel Mullins has been assigned to hear the case.
