PROVO A woman accused of having drugs in her house when emergency workers responded to a call for help because her husband had collapsed pleaded guilty to several charges on Tuesday.
Leslie Butler, 31, agreed to plead guilty to a second-degree felony of distribute/offer or arranging to distribute a controlled substance, as well as class A misdemeanors of illegal possession of a controlled substance.
Butler will be sentenced July 22 at 8:30 a.m. in 4th District Court.
On Feb. 24, police responded to a home in Springville to what they thought was a case of carbon monoxide poisoning. They found Jeffery Reed Butler, 35, unconscious on the floor.
Officers did CPR until an ambulance arrived. He was later pronounced dead at Utah Valley Regional Medical Center.
There was no evidence of carbon monoxide poisoning in the home and Butler allegedly refused to let police search the home until they obtained a warrant.
With the warrant, in the home the officers found drugs and drug paraphernalia, including heroin and cocaine.
Leslie Butler confessed she and her husband had done drugs the night before, according to an affidavit in support of the search warrant.
