DALLAS (AP) - A third person faces up to 20 years in prison for her role in the 2014 Texas drug overdose death of an apparent first-time heroin user.

Kathryn “Kat” Grace Dirks pleaded guilty Tuesday in Dallas to conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute heroin. Glen William Brunton and Cierra Allyn Rounds earlier pleaded guilty to the same count and also await sentencing.

Prosecutors say 19-year-old Rian Lashley of Dallas died in March 2014 after buying heroin via the suspects.

Jimison Erik Coleman awaits trial on charges of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute heroin, possession of heroin with intent to distribute and distribution of heroin.

Coleman was arrested in April following a vehicle chase through Orange County, California, that ended in Buena Park.
