(Monroe co.) WVLT - A Monroe County woman is now charged with criminally negligent homicide in connection with an overdose death of a 21-year-old man.
Authorities say Thursday, they saw 42-year-old Karen Ann Wallace performing CPR on the victim at an apartment in Vonore.
Wallace told officers she and James Dodson had snorted some hydrocodone pills earlier in the day.
Police say Wallace then said she took a nap and when she woke up, she saw Dodson lying on the couch and he was blue in the face.
Investigators say that's when Wallace called 9-1-1.
The investigation into Dodson's death continues.
