SIOUX CITY, Iowa — A Sioux City teen faces up to 10 years in prison for selling a synthetic drug that led to the death of another teen.

18-year-old Rose Mouw pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter and distribution of a controlled substance.

She admitted to selling K-2 to Austin McCloud, who died after smoking the illegal drug.

McCloud’s mother made an emotional statement during Mouw’s sentencing hearing.

“I will miss out on his future, I will miss out on his kids, his marriage,” Tammy Summers said. “I miss out on anything he may have accomplished. I loved him very much.”

Tammy Summers wants her son’s memory to serve as a warning about the dangers of K-2.
