LOS ANGELES, May 20 — A prostitute in California pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter for killing a Google executive by injecting him with heroin.
27-year-old Alix Catherine Tichelman was sentenced to six years in prison after accepting a plea deal in which the manslaughter charge was reduced to involuntary manslaughter.
Tichelman was with 51-year-old Forrest Hayes on his yacht in November 2013 when she injected him with a lethal overdose of the drug.
Her lawyers say the heroin use was consensual.
Surveillance video from the boat shows Tichelman made no effort to help Hayes after the overdose.
Hayes, a married father of five, is believed to have met Tichelman through a website that pairs young women with older men with money. — Reuters
