LOGAN — A 36-year-old Millville woman, who is already suspected of trying to help another woman attempt suicide, has admitted to breaking into a family member’s home and stealing medication.
Teresa Clark appeared in 1st District Court Wednesday afternoon. She pleaded guilty to misdemeanor theft and possession of prescription drugs. A date was also scheduled in her attempted suicide trial.
Deputies alleged that last fall, while Clark was out of jail on pre-trial supervision, she broke into a relative’s home. Once inside, she stole some prescription medication and later attempted to sell it for money.
During Wednesday’s hearing, Clark told the court she stole the pills for her personal use. She explained how she has diabetes, but doesn’t have insurance to afford her medication. Judge Thomas Willmore postponed sentencing until her other jury trial is finished. It was scheduled to for May 29 and will last four-days.
In June, police allege that Clark called 911 from a Logan hotel room. She told police that she had found her friend unresponsive inside the room. Officers later determined that she had tried to help the woman take her life several times unsuccessfully.
Inside the hotel room, detectives also found two dogs that were deceased. It is believed that Clark was also responsible for their deaths.
State attorneys later charged her with two counts of attempted aggravated murder, a first-degree felony, conspiracy to commit aggravated murder, a second-degree felony, and two misdemeanors for aggravated cruelty to animals. The case has been delayed after the victim died from an unrelated matter.
During Wednesday’s court appearance, Judge Willmore ordered Clark to remain in jail and appear again March 26 for a pre-trial conference.
