I don't understand how or why this guy is being charged for this. Are the assuming that he injected it into the man against his will, trying to kill him? I don't think so. This guy wanted to get the shot of heroin and couldn't do it himself so he enlisted the help of his buddy. It's not his fault that it ended up killing him. Those were most likely not his intentions. I don't think it's fair that he is getting charges and prison time for something that can't technically be considered a true crime. I'm sure the victim;s family had a ton of pressure on the police to investigate and press charges so they could feel better about the whole situation. Sadly, it still doesn't change the fact that he overdosed from injecting heroin. Now a man's life is ruined because they needed closure and relief from the harsh reality of what happened.
he gave him the shot

Trying to kill him ? No - and that why he wasn't charged with murder.

2nd degree manslaughter is defined as the unlawful killing of a human being without malice either express or implied, and without intent to kill or to inflict the injury causing death, committed accidentally in the commission of some unlawful act not felonious, or in the improper performance of an act lawful in itself. its a crime.

from long island herald article - 911 was called after the place was cleaned ....maybe if he called 911 first, and thought more about the guy dying instead of his sorry ass....

"Doctors told her that Robbie was given a deadly, synthetic form of heroin, she said, adding that there were many signs indicating that he was not alone when he died. A 911 call, she said, was made by someone claiming to be their father, who was more than 1,000 miles away. The puncture wound from the needle was on Robbie’s left arm, Patti said, yet he was left-handed. His coat and wallet were missing, no drugs were found and the home smelled of bleach and cleaners, she added."
