NEILLSVILLE (WAOW) - A judge Friday ordered a trial for a 37-year-old Granton woman accused of nine mostly drug-related charges following a home raid where a methamphetamine lab was found in the basement, according to online Clark County court records.
Among the charges Elizabeth Tuggle faces are three counts of second-degree recklessly endangering safety in having three children in her rural home where prosecutors say a drug house was being operated.
The judge ordered the trial after prosecutors presented evidence during a preliminary hearing to justify the charges, court records said. She is to enter pleas to the charges Feb. 22.
Her 34-year-old husband, Jonathan Tuggle, faces similar charges and pleaded not guilty in October. No trial date has been set.
The couple was arrested following a June 28 police raid at their home.
The sheriff's department said two children, ages 8 and 11, were removed from the home during the search and a third child was not home at the time.
