During the visit, the couple was seen kissing, which is how Dollard passed Brown a pellet containing a half-ounce of methamphetamine, according to the Tennessee Department of Corrections. Brown then swallowed the pellet.
He died a short time later at a local hospital, the bag thought to have burst open in his stomach and flooded his system with a massive and fatal dose of methamphetamine. His sentence was due to expire in 2029.
Rachal Dollard was taken into custody this weekend by special agents from the TDOC and the Dickson County Sheriff’s Department on a warrant of a sealed charge in Hickman County.
She has been charged with second-degree murder in Brown’s death and bringing contraband into a correctional facility.
Second-degree murder generally relates to incidents that are believed to have been carried out with malicious intent but are not believed to have been premeditated.
“This incident highlights the very real dangers of introducing contraband into prisons and the consequences that follow,” said David Imhof, director of the TDOC’s Office of Investigations and Conduct.
“Our agency will pursue any individual who threatens the safety of our staff, the men and women in our custody, and our facilities.”
In the state of Tennessee, second-degree murderers typically receive between 15 and 60 years in prison.
The punishment for second-degree murder is usually less severe than for first-degree murder, which is when a murder is considered deliberate and premeditated.
Capital punishment cannot be imposed as a sentence for a second-degree murder conviction.
The Department of Correction said in a statement that it employs a variety of tools to try to prevent the introduction of contraband into Tennessee prisons.
These include personal searches of anyone entering a facility, vehicle and cell searches, and drug-sniffing dogs. Body scanners are also being placed throughout the facility, they add.
