Two men have been charged with murder after a woman died from a drug overdose in South Georgia.
The charges, which fall in line with the law, are among a new effort to hold people accountable for supplying illegal drugs.
Police say 27-year-old Tiffany Marie Matice, 27, died of an illega drug overdose in December 2018.
33-year-old Brian Eric Clark of Cordele and 31-year-old Michael Eugene Newell have both been charged with felony murder.
The Sumter County District Attorney Lewis Lamb says this should serve as a ‘warning’ of the legal consequences to others supplying illegal drugs. His office plans to prosecute the cases.
