Guilty plea in drug death case

A Schenectady man has pleaded guilty to criminally negligent homicide and drug possession.

Jamey Williams, 41, pleaded guilty Tuesday in Schenectady County Court.

On Dec. 26, 2019, police say Williams sold what he said was cocaine to Justin Lowery. However, drug tests later revealed the substance was not cocaine, but instead contained fentanyl and heroin.

Lowery later died.

Williams’ sentencing is scheduled for on Oct. 20.
