A Miller County woman is charged with murder for supplying heroin to a man who fatally overdosed.

Lisa Abbett, 48, of Eldon, was charged last week with second-degree murder and delivery of a controlled substance.

It was July 27th when Eldon Police were called to a home to investigate an overdosed male.  The victim, later identified as Charles, Weatherford, 54, of Eldon, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Witnesses told police they saw Abbett inject Weatherford.  During questioning, Abbett admitted to supplying the drug, but said Weatherford injected himself.
