Western Ky. teen charged with manslaughter

The Associated Press

A western Kentucky teenager has been charged with manslaughter in the death of his younger friend.

The Paducah Sun reports that 17-year-old Adam Steven Hogarty of Mayfield died Monday at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tenn.

He had been taken there Saturday after his grandmother found him unconscious in his bed.

Police arrested 18-year-old Ethan Edwards after they learned Hogarty had apparently drunk a mixture containing codeine and morphine.

Authorities accuse Edwards of supplying the drugs.

Graves County sheriff’s investigators upgraded the charges against him within minutes of learning of Hogarty’s death on Monday afternoon.
