A drug dealer was arrested on a charge of possession with intent to sell after forcing a widow to sell cocaine because her husband died before paying off his debt, police in the United Kingdom said.

Now, 28-year-old Jose Vita of London, has been sentenced to serve seven years in prison after being convicted of selling drugs and harassment.

According to the police investigation, after the husband of Kirsty Vaughan died, she was forced to sell drugs in order to pay her husband’s debt.

Vaughan was addicted to cocaine. Vaughan’s husband, who was also addicted to drugs, dealt drugs on behalf of Vita.

Before his death, he accumulated a debt of 900 pounds.

Before the widow had a chance to bury her husband, Vita arrived at the home and ordered her to sell drugs in order to wipe off the debt.

Vita told the widow to sell drugs from her house, which she shared with her daughter and grandchild. Vaughan felt that she had no choice so she agreed to the demands.

People then came to the house and she started dealing drugs on behalf of Vita. After a few months, Vaughan decided that she had enough and turned herself in to police.

When Vita learned what she had done, he showed up at her home and threatened her with a baseball bat.
