A Minnesota man who threw a death party for his wife has been sentenced to three years in prison after admitting he threw a “death party” and gave her methamphetamine that killed her.
Duane Johnson , 59, of Searles was sentenced Monday after pleading guilty in June to criminal neglect. His wife, sixty-nine-year-old Debra Johnson was found dead in their home in January after her husband removed her from a nursing home.
The Mankato Free Press say Judge Robert Docherty approved the sentence that was proposed in the plea deal. Johnson was given credit for 201 days already served in jail.
Duane claimed that his wife wanted to die. An autopsy showed she died of methamphetamine toxicity.
As part of the plea deal , a third-degree murder charge was dismissed .
