When you hear someone is charged with murder, you likely think there was a physical weapon involved. Was it a gun? A knife? Something unique? What about a drug laced kiss that caused the death! This just happened to a Tennessee woman.

A 33 year old woman visiting an inmate at the Turney Center Industrial Complex jail in Tennessee hid a balloon in her mouth that contained a half ounce of a drug called speed. While meeting with an inmate, she passed it to the man through a kiss. Unfortunately, the inmate overdosed and died as a result of the drugs. Now, the woman was arrested and charged with second degree murder in addition to bringing the drugs into the jail.
