Jury indicts woman who bought beer before teen died

A Klamath Falls woman who allegedly bought 180 cans of beer for an underage drinking party is charged with criminally negligent homicide in the death of an 18-year-old who attended.

Klamath County District Attorney Ed Caleb says 33-year-old Roberta Jean Tamcke was jailed Monday after a grand jury indicted her. The Klamath Falls Herald and News said she turned herself in.

Police records show that 18-year-old Emilio Alfaro died Feb. 28 after the vehicle he was driving flipped and struck a telephone pole shortly after he left the party. His blood alcohol content was over the legal limit.

He was a 2008 Henley High School graduate who competed at the state level in wrestling last year.
