Federal prosecutors are seeking a plea hearing for the brother of West Virginia Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin in a drug distribution case.

Assistant U.S. Prosecutor C. Haley Bunn filed the motion Thursday in U.S. District Court in Charleston in the case involving 50-year-old Carl Tomblin of Chapmanville.

Bunn asked the court to schedule a hearing at which Carl Tomblin is expected to plead guilty to a federal information charging him with illegally distributing oxymorphone, a prescription painkiller, in December.
