CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - A West Virginia man is charged with first-degree murder after police say he provided a synthetic hallucinogenic drug to his wife that led to her death.

A court affidavit reveals that 35-year-old Todd Anthony Honaker of Left Hand believed he was buying LSD, but instead gave his wife an experimental drug. Honaker told police his wife, Renee, took a dose of the drug and began convulsing. The Roane County woman died March 1.

An autopsy determined that Honaker's wife died from abusing a synthetic hallucinogen known as 25b-NBOMe.

The Washington state man who is accused of supplying the drug is charged with delivery of a controlled substance.

Honaker is being held in Central Regional Jail.
