PRISON SENTENCE GIVEN TO DRUG SUPPLIER IN MORGAN COUNTY FATAL OVERDOSE CASE

Anthony Shelley and Tammy Conner were convicted this week on charges related to an overdose death from fentanyl, which occurred in Deer Lodge on May 21, 2022. Shelley provided fentanyl to Conner in exchange for oxycodone pills.

Morgan County Sheriff’s Office responded to the residence and found that three individuals had taken the illegal narcotics. Conner and another were able to be revived by law enforcement and EMS, but not the deceased, whose autopsy revealed that he died from a combination of fentanyl, oxycodone, and gabapentin toxicity.

Morgan County Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Unit investigated the case.

Anthony Shelley, as the direct supplier of the fentanyl, pled guilty to felony second-degree murder. Shelley received 15 years to serve at 100% in prison.

For her role in trading the oxycodone for the fentanyl from Shelley, Tammy Conner ended up pleading guilty to attempted facilitation of felony second-degree murder. It carried a sentence of six years on probation and a requirement to complete an inpatient program with outpatient treatment to follow.

District Attorney General Russell Johnson noted that since January 2023, there have been ten overdose deaths in Morgan County and 78 in the four counties of the Ninth Judicial District.
