A Christian County man already doing time in prison has been charged with second- degree murder in connection with the April overdose death of his girlfriend.

When twenty-year old Bret Turner of Nixa was arrested he was originally charged with distribution of a controlled substance in sixteen year-old Amanda Adkins' death. But prosecutors allege that he stole his mom's prescription morphine and gave it to Adkins. Final toxicology results show that Adkins died of an overdose of morphine, but had other drugs in her system as well.

Authorities found Turner was in possession of vicodin that he didn't have a prescription for at the of Adkins' death. He pleaded guilty last month to an amended charge of drug possession, without a plea agreement, and received a seven year prison sentence.

In addition to the murder charge, Turner has been charged with distribution of a controlled substance to a minor.

Turner was charged with unlawful use of a weapon last year and served 120 days shock time on that charge and received five years probation for drug possession charges in Greene County earlier this year.
