Police: 2 Monett women died after using methamphetamine
MONETT (AP) - Police said two southwest Missouri women found dead in their homes on the same day died after using methamphetamine.
Monett Police Chief Tim Schweder said a man who allegedly supplied the drugs to both women the day they died could be charged with second-degree murder in their deaths.
The women, 37-year-old Anna K. Smith and 25-year-old Tosha M. Norris, were found dead minutes apart in their homes in Monett Saturday.
The Joplin Globe reported that Schweder said the 35-year-old suspect took drugs with both women and left them alone when they each had a severe reaction to the drug.
The suspect is being held in the Barry County Jail, accused of failing to appear on a second-degree domestic violence charge. No bond has been set.
