The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the parents of a man who died at a drug party are suing the party's hostess.
Craig and Kelly Dodson are suing Kacie Kissell and two other defendants, Liana Kim and Jesse Ashley, in the death of Joshua Dodson, 20. The case was filed recently in circuit court in St. Charles County, a little more than a year after a criminal case against Kissell ended.
Kissell, 25, was sentenced in July of last year to eight years in prison for involuntary manslaughter and drug possession. Prosecutors said she repeatedly injected herself, Dodson and other guests with cocaine and heroin at a party in 2005 at her parents' home.
The suit brings negligence and battery claims against the defendants.
