A former East Grand Forks resident who was already convicted for trying to kill her daughters was sentenced Tuesday on drug charges.

Breezetta Etienne will spend 17 months in jail for buying more than 25,000 Phentermine pills and selling them out of her home.

Etienne was licensed as a physician's assistant until her license was suspended after the attempted murder of her children and could prescribe medications under a doctor's supervision, but could not legally buy medications on her own.

To get the pills, which are used for weight loss, authorities say Etienne falsely told the supplier that she practiced at a clinic.

Eteinne did face 19 charges but most of them were dropped in a plea deal.

Eteinne is already serving more than 12 years in prison for trying to kill herself and her two daughters by carbon monoxide poisoning in 2008, when she ran a hose from the exhaust pipe into her SUV.
