AVON, Colo. (AP) - A 24-year-old woman has been charged with criminally negligent homicide in the death of an Avon man who overdosed on heroin.

The Vail Daily reports Kaile Leigh Wilson of Edwards was arrested Thursday following an investigation into the death of Matthew Williamson. Wilson, who is free after posting $10,000 bond, also faces felony charges of drug distribution and reckless death.

Williamson's roommate called Avon police Feb. 13 to report Williamson was not breathing. Investigators say they found a variety of drug paraphernalia in the apartment, including a spoon that contained heroin residue and a belt that appeared to have been used as a tourniquet.

Wilson is accused of selling the drugs to Williamson that caused his overdose and death.
