OKLAHOMA CITY - Synthetic drug manufacturers can now be charged with first degree murder under a new law in Oklahoma. The bill, co-sponsored by state senator Susan Paddack of Ada, was signed into law today.

Authorities say last year ECU students Stacy Jewell and Andrew Ackerman died after using a synthetic drug known as 2-Bromo Dragonfly. The drug can cause hallucinations, vomiting, seizures, and rapid heartbeat.

Cody Weddle is charged with second degree murder after investigators say he bought the drug online and gave it to Jewell and Ackerman during a party in Konowa. Both Jewell and Ackerman died as a result.
