Ely Man Charged in Elko Woman's Overdose

RENO, Nev. (AP) - Elko police have arrested a 23-year-old Ely man for second-degree murder involving the death of a woman who died in June of a drug overdose.

In an affidavit, police say Joshua Winton sold 18-year-old Jennifer Williams methadone, oxycodone and at least one other prescription drug in the days before her death June 25.

Williams was found dead on her bedroom floor by her mother.

Authorities say an autopsy showed she had several drugs in her system and died of an overdose.

Police say some of Williams' family and friends indicated she was addicted to prescription drugs.

Investigators say other drugs found in Williams' system may have been obtained from family members or her boyfriend.
