Judies singer Warren Ullom gets 20 years in murder plea deal

Fulton DA Paul Howard has just announced that Warren Ullom, lead singer of local rockers The Judies, accepted a plea deal for voluntary manslaughter and has been sentenced to 20 years in prison for his role in a woman's fatal heroin overdose.

Ullom, 24, had originally been indicted on murder charges in the June 2008 death of Rachel San Inocencio, 32. According to prosecutors, Ullom and the victim had met only a few days before her death. The two were shooting heroin in Ullom's apartment when San Inocencio OD'd.

The DA's press release has the morbid details (concluding after jump):

The victim suddenly became critically ill from the drugs, but Ullom refused to seek medical attention on her behalf. He instead called a friend to bring some cocaine over, and as the victim lay unconscious for hours, he injected her twice with cocaine in an attempt to revive her from the heroin overdose.

The friend who brought the cocaine over eventually left and called 911 to summon help for the woman since Ullom refused to do so. However, the friend gave an incorrect address and the ambulance was unable to locate her. Ullom then sent a text to his friend stating, “She is better. No Ambulance.” The victim died approximately 30 minutes after Ullom’s text — prompting him to finally call 911 for an ambulance. He then placed the remaining cocaine baggies in the victim’s purse, and asked the police to remove her purse from his apartment. The investigation later revealed that Ullom also stole the victim’s diamond earrings and pawned them just three days after her death.

The Judies released their first — and now possibly last — CD only last month.
