7 years for killer dealer.

A DRUG dealer who gave a fatal dose of methadone to a 17-year- old boy was jailed for seven years yesterday.

Nicholas Paxton, 28, of East Linton, East Lothian was found guilty at the High Court in Edinburgh of the culpable homicide of teenager Kevin Pyrkosz.

Paxton, who was also convicted of supplying diazapam and cannabis, was the first person in Scotland to be convicted of killing someone by supplying the heroin substitute.

Kevin, from Aberlady, East Lothian, died in hospital in September 1996.
