A lollipop laced with a narcotic killed a cancer patient according to Duplin County authorities. Lawmen say it was administered by the wife of a Duplin County minister. Joan Celeste Fussell now faces involuntary manslaughter charges. The Duplin County Sheriff's office says Fussell, a cancer patient herself, gave Glenda May Lee a fentanyl lollipop that Fussell was prescribed for pain. The Duplin County sheriff says an autopsy showed Lee had a fatal dose of fentanyl in her body at the time of her death last July.
