A man in the state of Washington has been accused of giving methamphetamine-laced water to his wife in the Morton area at a time when she was nursing a 3-month-old baby.
Lewis County sheriff's Deputy Stacy Brown says 35-year-old William Lee Bieber is in jail for investigation of endangerment with a controlled substance, second-degree assault, domestic violence and five counts of witness-tampering.
On Wednesday Bieber was arrested again after detectives determined that he had called his wife 51 times from jail, despite a no-contact order. He's now under investigation on an additional 51 counts of violating the no-contact order.
Investigators say Bieber used the identification numbers of other jail inmates to place the calls.
Brown says he told authorities he made his wife drink meth water to "give her energy to clean the house."
