An Austintown woman has been sent to prison for supplying the drugs that caused a fatal overdose.

Johnise Burkley, 61, appeared before a judge in Mahoning County court on Thursday and was given a four-year sentence.

Burkley pleaded guilty earlier to charges of reckless homicide, illegal manufacture of drugs, and possessing criminal tools.

Investigators say Burkley was responsible for the fatal overdose of a 59-year-old man on October 15, 2021.

According to a police report, Burkley cooked the crack cocaine for herself and the man who died.
