CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — West Virginia Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin’s brother is facing a federal drug distribution charge.


A federal information charges 50-year-old Carl Tomblin of Chapmanville with illegally distributing oxymorphone, a prescription painkiller, on Dec. 6, 2013, at or near Chapmanville.


The governor said Wednesday in a statement that he’s saddened and disappointed but he loves his brother. He says his brother needs help and must be held accountable for his actions.


A telephone number for Carl Tomblin rang unanswered Wednesday.


U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin says in a news release that the charge stems from an investigation by the U.S. 119 Task Force and the West Virginia State Police.
