Woman Gets 10 Years in Prison for Fatal Heroin OD
TROY (AP) - An eastern Missouri woman has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for providing a fatal dose of heroin, and her brother goes to trial Friday.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that 32-year-old Wendy Voss of Moscow Mills pleaded guilty Monday to involuntary manslaughter and drug distribution. She was originally charged with second-degree murder.
Voss and her brother, 40-year-old Jason Voss of Elsberry, were charged following the death of 29-year-old Doug Geiger Jr. in April 2012. Geiger was found dead at a Troy motel. Two syringes and other drug paraphernalia were in the room.
Jason Voss told police that his sister sold heroin to Geiger for $100, and he delivered it and gave Geiger the syringe.
