LUDINGTON – A 34-year-old Sheridan Township woman faces a prison term of four and a half to 20 years in connection to the death of Katie Lynn Fulton, 35, of Ludington.

Neta Margett Sohn, of 4513 North Benson Rd., pleaded guilty in 51st Circuit Court Tuesday, Dec. 3, to delivery of fentanyl less than 50 grams. Charges of delivery of a controlled substance causing death and maintaining a drug house will be dismissed as part of a plea agreement.

Fulton died from an accidental drug overdose of heroin and fentanyl, Nov. 30, 2018, at a residence on 610 N. James Street in the City of Ludington.

Her sentence is near the top of the sentencing guidelines for the offense, said Mason County Prosecutor Paul Spaniola.

Sohn is one of four people convicted in connection to Fulton’s death, Spaniola said.

Michael Thomas Martinez, 34, of 4513 North Benson Rd., pleaded guilty last month to delivery of fentanyl causing death and third-offense habitual offender. Martinez faces a 10-60 year prison term.

Jeremy Jason Bonneau, 45, of 610 N. James St. — the address where Fulton died, pleaded guilty last June to heroin possession less than 25 grams and was ordered to serve six months up front of a one-year discretionary jail term.

“I lost a friend and lover to drug abuse,” Bonneau said last June. “She died in my bed. It’s hard to get that image of her dead, lifeless body out of my mind.”

Heather Elizabeth Sobers, 24, of 694 Kahill Dr., Apt. 1-3, Baldwin, pleaded guilty to a high-court misdemeanor of maintaining a drug house in connection to Fulton’s death, Spaniola said.

Sohn’s sentencing has not been scheduled, but is likely to occur Jan. 14, Spaniola said.
