A Midland man arrested after giving out a deadly dose of painkiller.

49-year-old Charles Deatherage will soon be on his way back to Midland after being arrested in Oklahoma.

Last May, investigators say he gave 22-year-old Jaret Bush oxycodone, a pain killer similar to morphine.

We're told bush blacked out and stopped breathing.

A family member found his body in bed.

If convicted, Deatherage faces up to life in prison.
