2 Charged in Connection to Man’s Overdose Death


Six months after a 34-year-old man overdosed on pain pills and died in Philadelphia, Tenn., authorities have charged two men who they say enabled it to happen.

James David Ingram, 44, of Sweetwater, was charged with reckless homicide after investigators found he “provided the financial means” for Jonathan Brewster to obtain the oxymorphone that was in his system when he died on Oct. 2, according to a news release from the Loudon County Sheriff’s Office.

Matthew Allen Freeman, 29, of Greenback, was charged with maintaining a dwelling for drug use after investigators found he lived at the home where Brewster died, the release states.

Ingram was being held Thursday at the Monroe County jail on unrelated charges. He is expected to be transferred to the Loudon County jail.

Loudon County Sheriff Tim Guider said in the release he wants citizens to know police “are making a statement” in the battle against prescription drug abuse and are actively pursuing prosecution for drug dealers tied to overdose deaths.
