Pot shop owner and husband accused in drugging their 17-year-old daughter have been arrested and charged with felony assault and battery, the Colorado Department of Public Safety announced Monday.
Samantha Stier, 29, and her husband, Tyler, 26, have been charged with misdemeanor assault and are being held on $100,000 bail.
Stier and Tyler, a licensed therapist, were arrested in the Boulder City Center on April 13, and Stier was charged with second-degree assault and involuntary manslaughter, according to the department.
Sierra Stier told police she had been drinking a large amount of vodka and other drugs, and that her husband had started drugging her on multiple occasions, the police report states.
Sister-in-law Samantha Stier said that her sister had stopped going to work at the shop and was depressed and had a lot of problems.
She said her sister told her to “do something bad” with Tyler Stier after she got pregnant.
Sandy Stier called the police and reported the incident to police.
Police said they were called to the Stiers’ home after receiving a call about a domestic disturbance.
The officers arrived at the Stiers’ home and found Samantha Stiers unconscious on the floor.
The Stiers were taken to a hospital, where she was later pronounced dead.
Police say Samantha Stiest’s boyfriend, Tyler Stiers, also 18, was also arrested and is charged with third-degree felony assault, a Class B misdemeanor.
He was also charged with involuntary manslaughter.
The couple was released from jail on a $5,000 bond.
