Former officer indicted in deaths

A former Cincinnati Private Police officer provided the drugs that resulted in the overdose deaths of two teens earlier this year, according to an indictment handed down by a Hamilton County grand jury Thursday.

Willard Wright, 44, of Colerain Township, provided methadone tablets to Justin Wright, Daniel Wright and Anthony Hollin, according to the indictment.

Hamilton County prosecutors say all three overdosed during the Fourth of July weekend.

Hollin, 18, and Justin Wright, 19, both of Norwood, died. Daniel Wright was hospitalized and survived.

The Hamilton County Coroner's Office determined that acute methadone intoxication led to the deaths, prosecutors said.
