2 charged with providing heroin leading to Oklahoman’s death

The Associated Press - July 28, 2019 8:54 am

MUSKOGEE, Okla. (AP) – A federal grand jury has indicted two McAlester residents for allegedly providing heroin to a person who died as a result of using the drug.
Court documents show that 31-year-old Callie Marie Woolsey and 41-year-old Darron Ray Aldridge are both charged with drug conspiracy resulting in death and distributing heroin resulting in death.
Woolsey has pleaded not guilty while Aldridge has yet to enter a plea and court records do not list an attorney to speak on his behalf. Jail records show that both are in custody in the Pittsburg County jail.
The indictment says that Woolsey and Aldridge provided heroin to a person identified only as A.B. who died in mid-December after using the drug.
Both face up to life in prison if convicted.
