Woman pleads guilty in boyfriend's death

BEULAH — A woman who provided the heroin that killed her boyfriend in Benzie County pleaded guilty to attempted manslaughter.

Lisa Woodhall, 29, initially was charged with delivery of a controlled substance causing death, which carries a maximum penalty of life in prison, in the 2011 heroin overdose of Michael Everett, 21.

“She said that she went down the street with $20 and bought heroin and brought it back for her and Michael Everett to use. They both used it and he never woke up,” Benzie County Prosecutor Sara Mason said.

Mason offered the plea deal and Woodhall agreed to provide testimony against other people involved in the case. Woodhall now faces up to seven and a half years in prison, but Mason said she agreed not to request a sentence of more than two years.

“Basically, she has been very cooperative with us,” Mason said.

A sentencing date has not yet been set. No one else has been charged in the case.
