ANADARKO — A Caddo County man will serve 10 years in prison after he pleaded guilty to selling fentanyl-laced drugs that killed a man in January 2021.
His accused accomplice is slated to plead guilty Oct. 11.
On Sept. 20, Sentrell Damone Johnson, 26, of Anadarko, pleaded guilty in Caddo County District Court to an amended count of second-degree murder after being initially charged with first-degree murder, records indicate. A charge of attempted escape from jail was dismissed with the plea.
District Judge Kory Kirkland sentenced Johnson to 20 years with 10 years suspended and 10 years to spend behind bars. The sentence runs concurrent to a seven-year sentence handed down in June for a count of drug trafficking.
Jailed since January 2021, Johnson will receive credit for time served.
Alyssa Marie Nimsey, 21, also of Anadarko, was charged with first-degree murder. Nimsey is scheduled to enter a guilty plea Oct. 11, records indicate.
With his plea, Johnson accepted guilt to selling the dose of counterfeit M-30s laced with fentanyl that caused the Jan. 18, 2021, death of Colton Wright, 22, Cement.
According to the probable cause affidavit, Wright was found dead by his family members in the bathroom at his home. Evidence led investigators to believe he’d died from an overdose. A search of the Cement and Anadarko areas led to people with information about illegal drug movements leading to his death and, according to investigators, tracing back to Johnson and Nimsey.
Johnson told investigators he’d been staying with Nimsey and advertising M-30 tablets, counterfeit Oxycodone containing fentanyl, for sale on social media, the affidavit states. He admitted to selling Wright a pill for $30 on Jan. 18, 2021. He said the pill was from a batch he’d bought out of Lawton and said a few pills “weren’t good.”
Nimsey confirmed Johnson’s story, according to the affidavit.
The State Medical Examiner’s autopsy report identified Wright’s cause of death as “acute Fentanyl toxicity.”
