Couple charged with injecting woman and videotaping her death

The Associated Press - November 3, 2019 1:48 pm

EUCHA, Okla. (AP) – A northeast Oklahoma husband and wife are charged with injecting a woman with methamphetamine two years ago and videotaping her as she asked for help, then died.
Court records show 50-year-old Brian Edward Anderson and 42-year-old Allie Beth Anderson were charged Tuesday with first-degree murder in the October 2017 death of 41-year-old Melissa Vermillion at the Andersons’ home in Eucha, about 65 miles east of Tulsa.
Affidavits say that an informant in August linked the two to Vermillion’s death and that she may have been killed to prevent her from testifying against the couple in a separate case. The document says that the Andersons face drug charges in another county.
Jail records show that both Andersons are in custody. An attorney listed for Brian Anderson did not immediately return a phone call Saturday for comment. No attorney is listed for Allie Anderson.
