MARTINSBURG, W.Va. (AP) - A Martinsburg woman will spend at least two years behind bars after pleading guilty to charges stemming from a fatal heroin overdose.

Multiple media outlets report that 41-year-old Kenyatta White pleaded guilty on Monday to involuntary manslaughter and delivery of heroin.

Berkeley County Circuit Court Judge Michael D. Lorensen sentenced White to a year in jail on the misdemeanor manslaughter charge, followed by one to 15 years in prison on the felony drug charge.

The charges stem from the death of 37-year-old Kelli Christina Austin of Gerradstown in May 2014.

Prosecutors say White helped facilitate a heroin deal that led to Austin’s death.
