Charges in Teen's Ecstasy Death

New Year's Eve party that ended up in an Ecstasy-caused death has led to murder charges against those who provided the drugs. From the Western Morning News in Plymouth, England:
Three people have appeared in court over the death of a Westcountry teenager from a suspected overdose, after a New Year's Eve night out. Lisa Marie Gardner, 17, from Plymouth, was suddenly taken ill when she returned to a friend's house just after midnight.

Despite paramedics' efforts to revive her, she was pronounced dead at Derriford Hospital in Plymouth at 2.40am.

Emma Stevens, 23, and her partner Gregory Stevens, 31, of Thames Gardens, Efford, Plymouth, appeared before Plymouth magistrates yesterday charged with supplying a class A drug - Ecstasy - to the teenager.
A third man was charged with attempting to subvert the investigation.
