Woman charged with elderly father's murder
A 53-year-old Woodbridge woman has been charged with the murder of her 82-year-old father, who police say had been drugged before he collapsed in a Prince William County hotel in March.
Patrica L. Blevins, who was charged with felony homicide on Friday, also is under investigation by federal authorities for prescription fraud involving the drug Sertaline, a generic form of the anti-depressant and anti-anxiety drug Zoloft, Prince William County police said Monday.
Police said Blevins’s father, Marden Wilson, collapsed on March 13 at the Residence Inn in Woodbridge. Blevins was taken to Potomac Hospital and later died.
An autopsy showed a high level of Sertaline in his system, and crushed Sertaline pills were found in his stomach, police said. At the time, they said, Wilson did not have a prescription for the drug. He did not have a primary physician and was in his daughter’s care.
Police said “further attention” was drawn to Blevins when they learned of the federal investigation. Blevins, whose last known address was the 13000 block of Staggs Court, is being held without bond.
