LAUDERDALE CO., TN (WMC) - A West Tennessee man will spend time behind bars for distributing heroin that killed a person, according to federal attorneys.
Lawrence Laurenzi, the acting U.S. attorney for the Western District of Tennessee, said Marvin "Pookie" Foster pleaded guilty to drug charges. Federal attorney's suggested a 25-year sentence.
Foster, 49 of Halls, Tennessee, sold heroin to a man in July 2014. After the man overdosed on the drugs, Foster drove his car to a rural area and left him to die.
A medical examiner said Foster's heroin killed the man who took the drugs.
In June 2015, TBI agents tracked Foster down and arrested him.
