Man gets 8 years for selling fatal heroin hit
A man accused of selling a fatal hit of heroin to a Bellefontaine man pleaded guilty as part of a deal before his trial was set to start Tuesday morning.
Dominique B. Woodum, of Montgomery County, accepted the charge of corrupting another with drugs, a second degree felony, according to Logan County Prosecutor Eric Stewart. Woodum was sentenced to eight years in prison.
He was accused of selling heroin to Eric Pooler, who then fatally overdosed on Nov. 30, 2016, according to court documents. His body was allegedly later moved to another location and was found three days later in his pickup truck.
Woodum was originally charged with involuntary manslaughter, tampering with evidence, abuse of a corpse and possession of cocaine.
