Supplier Convicted In SMU Student's Overdose Death

A man accused of being the supplier in the overdose death of a Southern Methodist University student was convicted Friday on drug and weapons charges.

A federal jury in Dallas convicted 48-year-old James McDaniel.

Jurors decided the Dallas man provided cocaine, methamphetamine and oxycodone leading to the 2007 death of 21-year-old Meghan Bosch.

Her body was discovered in a portable toilet in Hewitt, near Waco.  Bosch's body was wrapped in a blanket that prosecutors said came from McDaniel's poker room near the SMU campus.

McDaniel was convicted of maintaining a drug-involved premise, possession with intent to distribute and distribution of cocaine, possession with intent to distribute and distribution of a controlled substance resulting in death, and two counts of possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime.

Sentencing is Sept. 8. McDaniel faces a maximum life prison term.
