DALLAS (AP) - A 48-year-old man has drawn a life sentence for supplying lethal drug doses to a Southern Methodist University student.
James McDaniel was sentenced Wednesday in federal court in Dallas after he was convicted last spring of several drug-related charges. One was possession of a controlled substance resulting in death.
Prosecutors presented evidence that McDaniel targeted SMU students with his poker and cocaine operation, and that 21-year-old Meaghan Bosch was one of them. Trial testimony showed that Bosch was last seen alive but unconscious at McDaniel's home near the SMU campus on May 11, 2007. Three days later, her body was found in a portable toilet at a construction site in Hewitt, near Waco.
An autopsy showed that she died of overdoses of cocaine, methamphetamine and oxycodone, and McDaniel's DNA was found at the crime scene.
