He "died later at a local hospital" from an overdose
A woman who shared a kiss with a Tennessee inmate has now been charged with his murder after the man died following her visit.
Rachal Dollard (left) was taken into custody by Dickson County Sheriff’s Department over the weekend and faces second-degree murder and introduction of contraband into a penal facility charges following the death of inmate Joshua Brown (right) earlier this year.
"This incident points to the real dangers of introducing contraband into prisons and the consequences that follow," David Imhof, Director of TDOC's Office of Investigations and Conduct, said in a statement on Tuesday.
"Our agency will pursue prosecution against any individual who threatens the safety and security of our staff, the men and women in our custody, and our facilities," he added.
Dollard is currently being held in the Hickman County jail.
