Terrace Man Charged in Woman's Heroin Overdose Death


The Herald is reporting that a Mountlake Terrace man, Joshua Knox, has been charged with controlled substance homicide in the December 2009 death of Bridgette Johns in his Mountlake Terrace home:

Bridgette Johns woke her friend to complain to him that her ears were ringing and she was worried something was wrong.

Joshua Knox told her to go back to sleep.

Johns, 18, woke Knox again to complain that she had a stomachache and her ears were still ringing. Knox said he heard Johns snoring and thought about turning her on her side. He didn’t.

Johns, of Everett, was dead by morning. She died of a heroin overdose.

Prosecutors on Wednesday charged Knox, 26, with controlled substance homicide. Knox is accused of providing Johns a deadly dose of heroin at his Mountlake Terrace home. If convicted, he faces up to eight years in prison.
