Suspect in fatal Morgantown overdose case indicted

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. The child neglect suspect in an overdose that resulted in the death of a seven-year-old’s mother, Steven Hunter, 34, has been indicted by a Monongalia County grand jury.

On April 23, authorities said a 7-year-old child called his grandfather, who called 911 to report that Steven Hunter, 34, and Beverly Amber Wright were found unresponsive in the bedroom of a home in the Morgantown area.

When state troopers arrived, two clear plastic bags of white powder, burnt foil, and a straw were within reach of the child and in open view.

Hunter faces a charge of felony child neglect.
