A Huntington woman who pleaded guilty in connection with her friend’s death from a drug overdose has been sentenced to eight-years in prison.  But 41-year old Christy Oden will only serve six-years in jail as part of a plea agreement.
 
Oden pleaded guilty to Reckless Homicide in connection with the death of Annette Veach in November of 2012.  Oden admitted providing her with ground-up morphine that the two women snorted.  Veach died from an overdose.
 
Oden received an eight-year jail term, but will serve two of those years on probation.  She also must pay Veach’s family five-thousand dollars for her funeral expenses.
