Man to get prison in Pa. teen’s heroin overdose

CLARION, Pa. (AP) — A man has pleaded guilty to injecting the heroin that led to a western Pennsylvania woman’s death and then moving her body to her car to make it appear she had overdosed on her own.

The (Oil City) Derrick ( ) reports 30-year-old Shawn Ryan Carr, of Kittanning, pleaded guilty to drug delivery resulting in death, abuse of a corpse and other crimes after Clarion County prosecutors agreed to drop a more serious third-degree murder charge against him.

Under terms of Wednesday’s plea agreement, he’ll face eight to 16 years in prison when he’s sentenced Aug. 14.

Nineteen-year-old Devan Knapp’s mother reported her missing Jan. 13 and her body was found in her car two days later on a road outside Clarion, about 60 miles northeast of Pittsburgh.
