BETHANY, Mo. (AP) - An Amish minister from Kentucky is considering a plea deal offer in his wife’s death nine years ago in Missouri.

The St. Joseph News-Press (https://bit.ly/1S2UJ7D ) reports that a judge has given 39-year-old Samuel Borntreger two weeks to consider the deal. Borntreger, of Summer Shade, Kentucky, is charged with first-degree murder in the death of 26-year-old Anna Yoder Borntreger.

Court records allege Borntreger went to Kentucky authorities last month and told them he put antifreeze in her drinks and battery acid in her rectum before her death in late 2006. No foul play was suspected when she died.

Harrison County Prosecutor Cristine Stallings declined to discuss the details of the plea bargain.

Borntreger’s attorney, Kelly Miller, didn’t immediately return a phone message or email from The Associated Press seeking comment.
