Great Falls man pleads no contest to charges for drug-related deaths of wife, child

Devin Michael Olson

GREAT FALLS – A Great Falls man has entered a new plea for the death of his wife and their child in January of 2018.

Devin Michael Olson pleaded no contest Monday to two counts of negligent homicide.

Court documents state Olson gave his wife methamphetamine before the birth of their child. She was about eight months pregnant at the time of her death.

The baby was removed from Olson’s wife’s womb via emergency caesarean section and airlifted to a Seattle hospital, where the child later died.

Court documents state the infant died of acute methamphetamine intoxication, and Olson’s wife died of an acute methamphetamine overdose.

Judge John Kutzman said he will not accept or reject the plea until the pre-sentence investigation is complete.

Olson is set to be sentenced June 18.
