Police recommended Jenkins be charged with first-degree reckless homicide-drug delivery, possession of marijuana, possession of fentanyl and possession of drug paraphernalia, the sheriff said. Investigators recommended Phillips be charged with first-degree reckless homicide-drug delivery and hiding a corpse.
Phillips and Mathewson tried to take Salinas' body to the lake, but said he was too heavy, according to a criminal complaint. They ended up stashing him under a piece of plywood and then went to shoot up more heroin, records show.
Both Phillips and Jenkins were involved in the delivery of heroin to Salinas before he died of an overdose, Wollin said in a statement released Tuesday.
