A 19-year-old woman died in a robbery gone wrong.
A stripper of Dallas, Texas, who injected a young woman with heroin, said that she only meant to “incapacitate” the teen so she could rob her.
Sadly, the victim, Rian Lashley, died of an overdose as she never used heroin before.
The stripper, 27-year-old Cierra Allyn Rounds, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute drugs, and faces up to 20 years in prison.
In federal court Tuesday, Rounds described how she and her friends met Lashley at an IHOP, so that Lashley could buy $100 worth of heroin from them. She said that they changed their plans after they discovered that Lashley had $3,000 cash in her purse.
She then texted her alleged drug dealer, who goes by “JC,” and sent a series of messages outlining her plot to rob Lashley.
JC was not charged in the case.
Rounds drove Lashley to a house, where she and another woman, Kathryn Dirks, injected the victim with a dose of heroin.
Rounds said that the drug was only supposed to incapacitate the victim so that they could take her money, her phone and her iPad.
When Rounds and Dirks saw that Lashley was reacting badly to the heroin, they put her in an ice bath in an attempt to help her. Lashley later passed out.
In court, Rounds said that she thought that Lashley fell asleep, but the teen had died. An autopsy revealed the cause of death was a heroin overdose.
