59 year old, Duane Arden Johnson has been sentenced to 3 years in prison after throwing a ‘death party’ for his sick wife, Debra Johnson. The autopsy report showed that the ailing 69-year-old wife of the accused died of a methamphetamine overdose. According to Johnson, his wife asked him to let her die at home rather than in the nursing facility where she had been receiving treatment for diabetes, high blood pressure, and mental illness.
Based on reports, Debra stopped taking her prescription drugs on arriving home but died as a result of being neglected while suffering methamphetamine overdose. Earlier in January, when Arden Johnson was arrested for the crime, he was charged with third-degree murder but bagged a 3 years sentence for pleading guilty to a lesser charge of criminal neglect.
Johnson told the police that he held a “death party” where he and his wife had sex, used methamphetamine and listened to their best song, Metal Health by Quiet Riot, all to please his wife as she wished.
According to the police report, Johnson ran out of his home naked screaming that his wife had died. The police found him sitting in a bathtub, washing off black and white stains from his skin. During the search, they also discovered 477 guns and hundreds of rounds of ammunition in Johnson’s home and the dead wife’s body was found at the top of the stairs, wrapped in a sheet.
