3 in­dicted in opi­oid death


TULSA — Two women and a man have been in­dicted by a fed­eral grand jury in con­nec­tion with the opi­oid-re­lated death of a woman in 2014.

U.S. At­tor­ney Trent Shores in Tulsa said Jennifer Boyce, 36, and Michael Miers, 30, both of Pryor, and Christina Dempsey, 39, of Chouteau were in­dicted Tues­day on charges of con­spir­acy and dis­tri­bu­tion of oxy­codone re­sult­ing in death.

Court doc­u­ments do not list at­tor­neys for any of the de­fen­dants.

The in­dict­ment al­leges Dempsey pro­vided oxy­codone pills to Boyce and that Boyce and Miers sold them from their home in Pryor, in­clud­ing to Jennifer McNulty, who died Oct. 25, 2014, of acute oxy­codone in­tox­i­ca­tion.

The in­dict­ment doesn't say where Dempsey al­legedly ac­quired the pills and prose­cu­tors didn't im­me­di­ately re­spond to a re­quest for com­ment on Wed­nes­day.
