Charges Brought in UK Ecstasy Death

The murderers of 17-year-old Lisa Marie Garnder, who died after being given Ecstasy, had their first day in court. From England's Daily Mail:
Three people charged in connection with the suspected ecstasy death of a teenager have today made their first Crown court appearance. Lisa Marie Gardner, 17, was suddenly taken ill when she returned to a friend's house in Plymouth after a New Year's Eve night out and died shortly afterwards.

Emma Stevens, 23, and her partner Gregory Stevens, 31, of Thames Gardens, Plymouth, yesterday appeared before Plymouth Crown Court charged with supplying a Class A drug to Lisa.

They are also accused, along with David Travers, 19, of Manston Close, Plymouth, of acting with intent to pervert the course of justice.

The trio spoke only to confirm their names, and were released on conditional bail until a plea and directions hearing at the court on May 13.
