CENTENNIAL, Colo. (AP) - A Centennial woman who was arrested after four people associated with her died after mixing drugs has been sentenced to 18 years in prison.

The Arapahoe County District Attorney’s Office says 52-year-old Almeda Sullivan was sentenced Friday after pleading guilty to second-degree murder in the death of 21-year-old Carter Higdon, who was found dead in Sullivan’s home in October 2011. Sullivan was accused of selling Higdon and other young adults narcotic painkillers similar to oxycodone.

Court records say that in January 2008, 19-year-old Sierra Renee Cochran died in Sullivan’s home after she accidently overdosed. According to investigators, 28-year-old Lindsey Jo Saidy and 20-year-old Martynas “Tez” Simanskas also died after overdosing on prescription medications tied to Sullivan.
