Man Charged with selling Heroin to Woman Who Died
Authorities have arrested a man charged with selling heroin to a suburban Kansas City woman who drowned in a bathtub while high.
The Lee’s Summit Police Department said in a Facebook post that 28-year-old Jared Daniels was taken into custody late Monday. He was charged over the weekend with second-degree felony murder and delivery of a controlled substance in the death of 23-year-old Taylor Stephens. No attorney is listed for him in online court records.
Court documents say Stephen’s boyfriend found her unresponsive in a bathtub in March. She was pronounced dead at a hospital.
An autopsy said the cause of death was drowning with “other significant condition to be acute heroin and Fentanyl intoxication.”
Records say Daniels also supplied heroin to a man who died of an overdose.
