Shores said Zumwalt admitted to talking about distributing over 500 grams of meth with convicted murderer Slint Tate through phone calls.

Tate is currently serving life sentence for a 1999 murder.

“This drug trafficking organization wreaked havoc in the lives of many in northeastern Oklahoma. Zumwalt and her co-conspirators earned the punishments received,” said U.S. Attorney Shores. “This prosecution was successful because of strong partnerships among federal, state, and local law enforcement officials. Working together, we achieved a result that makes our communities safer.”

Tate was sentenced to 20 years for orchestrating the sales.
