Right, a LEADING question is "You were beating your wife, weren't you?" It assumes the answer.

On the other hand, a LOADED question is "When did you stop beating your wife?" It really has no proper answer, assuming that you have never beat your wife, except to deny the whole question.

There may be another name for it, but loaded question is what it's usually called.
