Woman convicted in Google exec’s death charged in Georgia

ATLANTA (AP) — Prosecutors in Georgia say they’ll seek to extradite a woman convicted of involuntary manslaughter in a Google executive’s overdose death so she can face separate charges in the deadly overdose of her boyfriend near Atlanta.

Alix Tichelman was deported to Canada after serving a California sentence for giving a fatal heroin shot to Google executive Forrest Hayes on his yacht in November 2013.

A Georgia grand jury in September indicted Tichelman on charges of felony murder and distribution of heroin and oxycodone in the September 2013 death of Dean Riopelle, who owned the Masquerade, a popular Atlanta music venue.

The indictment says Tichelman caused Riopelle’s death by giving him drugs while he was drunk.

Court records don’t list a lawyer for Tichelman. A number for her couldn’t immediately be found.
