Columbus Woman Charged In Fatal Heroin Overdose Death

Franklin County Sheriff's Office

A Columbus woman is behind bars, accused of selling a deadly dose of heroin. Prosecutors say Paris Hatton has been indicted on  seven counts: one count of involuntary manslaughter, two counts of corrupting another with drugs, two counts of aggravated trafficking of drugs, and two counts of trafficking in heroin. Hatton was tracked down through cell phone records after Lewis Jamison died of a heroin overdose in February. She is the seventh suspected drug dealer in Franklin County to be charged with an overdose death this year.

Jim has been with WCBE since 1996. Before that he worked as a reporter at another Columbus radio station, and for three newspapers in Southwest Florida.
