|Two Catahoula men booked in Concordia teen's death|
Two Catahoula Parish men have been charged with supplying drugs that resulted in the death of a Concordia Parish teenager last week.
Wedon Mark McMillin, 28, 290 Taylor Road, was booked by the Catahoula Parish Sheriff's Office on Thursday, April 26, and Harvey Savage Jr., 27, of Jonesville, was booked Tuesday morning. Each has been charged with second degree murder and bond for each was set at $200,000 by Judge Leo Boothe.
The two men are accused of supplying drugs that resulted in the death of Sara Morgan, 17, a senior at Monterey High School, according to Sheriff James Kelly.
Kelly said Morgan was spending the night with a friend on Tew Lake Road in Catahoula Parish when the following morning, Thursday, April 26, she could not be awakened. Kelly said Morgan had gone to bed at 10:30 p.m. the night before.
He said McMillin was in the home during Morgan's visit.
Morgan was transported to the LaSalle Parish Hospital in Jena where she was pronounced dead.
Kelly said McMillin was interviewed later that day and charged in the case. He said the investigation revealed that Savage supplied drugs to McMillin.
Quoting state statues, Kelly said an individual can be charged with second degree murder "when the offender unlawfully distributes or dispenses a controlled dangerous substance which is the direct cause of the death of the recipient."
Kelly said toxicology tests are being performed by the Jefferson Parish Coroner's Office.
"This is such a sad, tragic and unnecessary death," Kelly said. "You can only hope and pray that through what has happened that lessons will be learned and other lives might be save."
He said "people need to know that if someone supplies drugs to another person and that person dies they can be charged with very serious crimes."
