Carl Tomblin, governor's brother, to plead guilty to drug charge

CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin's brother will plead guilty to a federal drug charge, according to recent court documents.

Carl Tomblin, 50, of Chapmanville, was charged with illegally distributing prescription painkillers, according to a federal information filed earlier this week.

The information said Tomblin illegally distributed oxymorphone, a generic form of Opana, on or about Dec. 6 in Chapmanville.

Federal prosecutors filed a motion Thursday to schedule a guilty plea for Tomblin. 

Assistant U.S. Attorney Haley Bunn is handling the prosecution.
