Mo. Man Guilty of Providing Fatal Dose of Heroin
ST. LOUIS (AP) - A 40-year-old eastern Missouri man has been found guilty of involuntary manslaughter for providing a fatal dose of heroin to a man two years ago.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports Jason Voss also was found guilty Thursday of distribution of a controlled substance. On Friday, Lincoln County jurors recommended Voss be given the maximum sentences of seven years for manslaughter and 15 years on the drug charge.
He is scheduled to be sentenced April 8.
Voss was charged after 29-year-old Douglas Geiger Jr. was found dead April 23, 2012, at a motel in Troy. Voss' sister, Wendy Voss, also was charged after toxicology results confirmed Geiger died of a heroin overdose.
Wendy Voss pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter earlier this month and was sentenced to 10 years in prison.
