McDowell woman charged in husband's drug death

WAR, W.Va. -- A McDowell County woman jailed on a drug charge is facing new charges stemming from the death of her husband.

West Virginia State Police Trooper J.R. Coburn said Chayna Eskins, 20, was charged Wednesday with first-degree murder and delivery of a controlled substance.

Coburn said Eskins is accused of giving her husband, Samuel Lee Saunders, 20, a lethal dose of opiates in December 2012.

Eskins is being held at the Southwest Regional Jail in Logan on an unrelated charge of possession with intent to distribute a controlled substance.
