BOSSIER PARISH, LA (KSLA) - Tonight Bossier Sheriff's deputies are speaking out on what they are calling an unusual case.

 A spokesman for the sheriff's department says as far as he knows this is the first case like this of it's kind in the ArkLaTex and he says he hopes it sends a warning to drug dealers.  Police say 29-year-old Paul Martin was the drug dealer who sold Matthew Fite an eight ball of meth.  Tonight both men are in Bossier parish jails not on a drug charge but for second degree murder.

Police say 44 year old Dorothy Wilson took the meth and overdosed back on June 17th. They say she and Fite were in a home on the 200 block of Cloverleaf Drive in Haughton shooting up all night.

Bossier Sheriff's spokesman Ed Baswell explains the law. "There is a provision in the law that says a person can be charged if any are directly responsible for dispensing the drugs that were then dispensed and someone died."

Baswell is hoping drug dealers take note. "People who deal with drugs need to understand that if you dispense drugs to someone and they dispense them to someone else which directly leads to that person's death, than they can be charged. The original dispenser of the drugs can be charged with murder."

Martin was arrested on Thursday, Fite was taken into custody back in June. Tonight both men are being held on a million dollars bond each.
