A fifty year-old man from Kimberling City has been placed on five years probation after pleading guilty to possession of a controlled substance.

Stone County Prosecutor Matt Selby says his office could never prove that Dennis Horn, who had a valid prescription for Fetanyl, provided the drugs that killed 45 year-old Robert Murray, of Kimberling City, and 46 year-old Mark Marshal of Sparta on September 27, 2011.

Murray and Marshal died after extracting the Fetynal from a patch and cooking it with apple juice then injecting the drug mixture.

A friend of the dead men, Todd Rogers, told investigators that his friends had purchased Lorcet from Horn, who did NOT have a valid prescription for that controlled drug, the day before they overdosed.
