Tuesday, February 4th, 2014 at 6:33 am

A Pierce County man accused in connection with his wife’s death has pleaded guilty to drug charges.

Online court records show 61 year old Robert John Whaley of Prescott made the plea in court Monday.

He was ordered to serve three years on probation after a reckless homicide charge against him was dropped.

Last July 59 year old Jeanne Whaley was found dead in their home. It’s believed she had taken methadone.

The police chief said Whaley may have given her the drugs that led to her death.
