Duncan man faces murder charges

DUNCAN  Attorney General Mike Hunter has filed first-degree murder charges in Carter County on a Duncan man for allegedly selling a lethal dose of heroin that killed a woman the same day she purchased the drugs.

According a press release, the affidavit states that Howard Timken Jr., 36, admitted to selling a gram of heroin and approximately 1.5 grams of methamphetamine to Kimberly Ford in the early morning of May 18, 2017,  hours before her death.

An interview with a witness, who accompanied Ford to purchase the drugs the day she died, said after she picked up the drugs in Duncan, she injected herself with what the witness believed to be a fatal dose of heroin and methamphetamine while on the way back to Springer.

Approximately 10 to 15 minutes after taking the drugs, the witness said Ford said she "felt weird."
