KALAMAZOO, Mich. (WOOD) - A woman has been found guilty of delivering a controlled substance. Her husband died after doing heroin with her, 22 days after they were married.
After a two-day trial, a Kalamazoo County jury found Kathryn Cartwright guilty of a lesser charge than she originally faced. Prosecutors had initially charged her with delivery of a controlled substance causing death.
Harold Cartwright died June 25, 2012 in his Kalamazoo Township home. He was 43. The medical examiner determined his death was caused in part by a dose of heroin supplied by his wife.
Kathryn Cartwright turned herself in to authorities on Oct. 12, 2012.
Police said she told them that her husband agreed to provide money for heroin if she had sex with another man in front of him.
Authorities say Cartwright bought $100 worth of heroin, and she and her husband used it together. Later that night, police say Kathryn Cartwright fulfilled her part of the deal while her husband lay passed out. In the morning, she found her husband dead.
Cartwright faces up to 20 years in prison. Sentencing is scheduled for Nov. 25.
