CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. -

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation arrested three individuals Wednesday after they were indicted for the death of a Stewart County teen.

Kristin Irizarry, 17, of Clarksville, was found dead in a home in Cumberland City last October.  An autopsy revealed she died of a prescription drug overdose.

The investigation found that the night before Izarry's death, her mother, 41-year-old Nicole Irizarry, gave her oxymorphone to sell.

That night, Kristen, along with 20-year-old Darius Skelton, 19-year-old Dayzon Skelton and a juvenile, went to a party where alcohol was served and attempted to sell Nicole Irizarry's pills.

They returned to Dayzon Skelton's home. Kristin was found dead the next morning.

Kristin Irizarry was indicted on several charges including second degree murder, aggravated child neglect, contributing to the delinquency of a child and conspiracy to sell a scheduled drug.

Dayzon and Darius Skelton were each charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell, two counts of contributing to the delinquency of a child, conspiracy to sell a scheduled drug and criminally negligent homicide.

Nicole Irizarry was booked into the Henry County jail on a $50,000 bond.

The Skeltons were booked into the Stewart County jail on a $25,000 bond each.
