Six charged following overdose death of Oklahoma woman
OKLAHOMA CITY — Six people accused of running a prescription drug ring have been charged with homicide, linking to the overdose death of a woman last year, according to police.
Three men and two women were arrested near Tulsa following the death of 38-year-old Jennifer McNulty, who reportedly died after taking oxycodone she purchased from a network of prescription drug dealers.
Authorities say there was another woman, who was already in jail on other charges, was also indicted on murder charges in the case.
“People need to realize giving or selling prescription drugs to someone other than the person the drugs were prescribed for is a felony and makes them responsible for what happens; in this case the death of a woman, and that’s murder,” Pryor Police Chief Steven Lemmings said in a statement.
