Five drugs. And barely navigated 68.
Prosecutor Steve Somers said the cause of King’s erratic driving was a combination of drugs in her blood, including the painkillers morphine and Vicodin, along with anti-anxiety drugs Xanax and Wellbutrin and the sleeping aid Ambien.
Because she had five prior DUIs and had been repeatedly warned the drugs she was taking for chronic back pain could cause drowsiness, the Monterey County District Attorney’s Office accused her of murdering him. But King’s defense is that Woods’death was the result of an accident.
