The kiss of death was given.
A Tennessee woman is accused of giving a prisoner meth during a visit and was charged with murder after the prisoner passed away, according to authorities.
The Tennessee Department of Correction said in a statement on Tuesday that Rachel Dollard, 33, is accused of concealing a balloon containing a half-ounce of speed in her mouth and giving it orally to Joshua Brown at the Turney Center Industrial Complex in February.
According to the prison administration, Brown overdosed and died at a nearby hospital while serving an 11-year term for drug-related offenses.
According to officials, Dollard was charged with second-degree murder and bringing contraband into the prison after being apprehended last weekend for the reportedly fatal kiss.
