Police in Washington searched Renzelman's home and allegedly found 150 jars of hallucinogenic mushrooms, eight containers of unknown liquids, and blotter paper soaked in an unknown liquid. He was charged with delivery of a controlled substance and extradited to West Virginia in March. Analysis of evidence found inside Renzelman's home in Washington are still pending.
Also as part of Honaker's plea, he agreed to cooperate with federal agents in their case against Renzelman, Downey said. A federal judge granted FBI agents access to Renzelman and Honaker's Facebook accounts earlier this month.
Eugenia Cook, Renee Honaker's mother, said she is disappointed by Todd Honaker's plea deal, which she feels is too light of a sentence.
"My heart aches with everything that this 'man' has put this family through, including his own 5-year-old daughter," Cook said in an email to the Gazette Tuesday. "He is a drug addict and always will be."
On March 1, Todd Honaker called 911 and said his wife had possibly been poisoned. Paramedics found Renee Honaker unresponsive on her living room floor. Police said Todd Honaker was found lying on his bed, repeatedly asking officers if his wife was dead.
Honaker said his wife began convulsing about 30 minutes after taking two doses of the drug, according to the affidavit. Before calling for help, Honaker put the remaining doses back inside the envelope, placed it in the trash and took the trash bag to the end of his driveway, according to the statement by police.
"My disappointment with the legal system right now cannot be expressed," Cook said in an email. "It just seems like catching up with the guy that created the drug is more important then the life of my daughter. She didn't even get to see her 30th birthday."
