Campbell County Woman Indicted, Charged in Husband’s Overdose Death

From The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation -

Sonya Kay Brotherton - CCJ

A joint investigation by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation and the Campbell County Sheriff’s Office has resulted in the indictment of a Jacksboro woman on murder charges in connection to an overdose death.

On April 2, 2021, special agents with the TBI Drug Investigation Division joined investigators with the Campbell County Sheriff’s Office in investigating the death of 43-year-old Abraham Zenas Wallace after he was found deceased in the 300 block of Cumberland Overlook Lane in Jacksboro. His cause of death was determined to be an overdose caused by fentanyl and methamphetamine toxicity.

During the course of the investigation, agents determined that 36-year-old Sonya Kay Brotherton, Wallace’s wife, was one of the individuals responsible for distributing the drugs to him.

Last week, the Campbell County Grand Jury returned indictments charging Brotherton with one count of Second Degree Murder and one count of Delivery of Schedule II. On Tuesday, January 18, 2023 she was arrested and booked into the Campbell County Jail on a $100,000 bond.
