Shippensburg woman gets 10 years for heroin death

HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – A Shippensburg woman will spend 10 years in prison for heroin trafficking that resulted in the death of a 21-year-old Newburg man.

Ashley Gries, 21, was sentenced Thursday to 120 months by U.S. District Court Chief Judge Christopher C. Conner.

Gries pleaded guilty in August to conspiring with three co-defendants to distribute heroin that resulted in the death of Kyle Golter in February 2014.

U.S. Attorney Peter Smith said Gries, Danny Forrester, and Gabriel Stouffer  traveled from the Shippensburg area to Baltimore to buy heroin from Eugene Stallings Jr.

Forrester and Stouffer also pleaded guilty, and Stallings was convicted this month at a jury trial.

Forrester was ordered to serve 180 months in prison. Stouffer and Stallings have not been sentenced.
