Former Game Show Contestant Faces Charges For Alleged Attack

A Virginia woman is being indicted on felony charges after police say she broke into a house and injured a woman inside. And the case is making headlines for a multitude of reasons.

Claire Ogilvie, 36, is being charged with malicious wounding, abduction and breaking and entering while armed after an alleged attack on a Virginia legislator's wife.

Authorities say Ogilvie attacked Delegate David Toscano's wife, Nancy, at the family's home back in February.

WRLH reports, "The Toscanos claim they met her in 2010 but severed ties two years later, when she took an 'unsettling interest' in the family."

But, aside from the fact the case involves a public figure's wife, Ogilvie's sentencing is garnering media attention for another reason, too.

ABC reports Ogilvie was previously a contestant on a couple of popular game shows. She made two appearances on "Jeopardy" in 1998 and won $50,000 on "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?" in 2005.

Ogilvie remains in jail without bond. She's set to be arraigned Sept. 17.
