Authorities in the Morgan City area alleged Christen Brown, 42, killed Harold Sheets, 37, in August 2022. She faces a second-degree murder charge.
Brown actually was arrested April 10 in a different drug-related case.
Police told the Morgan City Daily Review that an unidentified woman was found on the same street in January, showing signs of overdosing. Brown is accused of delaying medical aid by searching for Narcan instead of calling 911.
A police statement indicated that woman survived but is “still under medical care.”
Brown is charged in that case with failure to seek assistance.
A police statement noted that it has Narcan. Many law enforcement agencies carry it, so officers can administer it during emergencies.
Brown was held Thursday on an enhanced $250,000 bond.
