SANTA CRUZ (CBS/AP) — An attorney for a prostitute charged with killing a Google executive with an overdose of heroin aboard his yacht says other women visited the man and may have done drugs with him before he died.
A judge ordered prosecutors to turn over to Alix Tichelman’s public defender any evidence that shows other women visiting Forrest Hayes’ yacht before he was found dead on it in the Santa Cruz harbor on Nov. 22, 2013.
Police say Tichelman injected Hayes with heroin and then left without seeking help when he passed out from an overdose. Tichelman has pleaded not guilty to charges of manslaughter, prostitution and transportation and sales of narcotics. She remains jailed in lieu of $1.5 million bond.
