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.
