CASPER, Wyo. – A federal judge has declined to dismiss an
indictment against a man charged in connection with the heroin
overdose death of Wyoming bull rider Bryan Guthrie.
     Christopher Tyson’s attorney Dion Custis had asked that the
charges against Tyson be dropped, saying his client had no way of
knowing that the heroin he’d bought would be given to Guthrie by
two other men. Guthrie died Dec. 2 after using the heroin.
     But U.S. District Judge Alan Johnson declined to toss out the
case against Tyson, saying the case could move forward.
