MIDLAND - A Midland woman is headed to federal prison for 21 months for her part in an overdose death last year.

22-year-old Emily Michah Suckarieh was convicted on Wednesday for giving 21-year-old Brandon Moore Xanax without a prescription.

The U.S. Attorney's Office says Moore died after taking that anti-depressant combined with methadone he bought from another woman.

Methadone is a synthetic drug used to help heroin addicts.
