Honaker told police that Renzelman addressed the LSD to him in an anniversary card. He allegedly threw the LSD and the card away in the trash before police and paramedics arrived.
Williams told the Gazette Tuesday night that a family member told him the couple's anniversary is much later in the year. The card was not relevant to any anniversary Williams is aware of, he said.
Officers went to the trash outside and found an envelope containing four LSD strips with instructions on how to take them and the price owed for them, according to the complaint.
Kennewick police searched Renzelman's house Saturday and reportedly found materials used to manufacture LSD.
Roane County Prosecuting Attorney Josh Downey said Renzelman waived his right to an extradition hearing Tuesday. Downey said that Roane authorities now have 30 days to pick Renzelman up from Washington to face the West Virginia charges.
Renzelman is charged with first-degree murder and delivery of a controlled substance in West Virginia. He's also facing a delivery of a controlled substance charge in Washington.
Renzelman was previously sentenced to probation after he was arrested for brewing an opium-based beer as a student at the University of California in Santa Cruz, according to Washington news outlets.
Williams said Renzelman is a chemist at a nuclear power plant in Washington.
