MEDFORD, Ore. —

A man and woman who threw a party for teens featuring booze and marijuana will spend time behind bars for their roles in the death of an Oregon girl who died after inhaling helium.

The two adults dropped their not guilty pleas Tuesday in Jackson County Circuit Court in Medford on criminal charges stemming from the 2012 death of 14-year-old Ashley Long.

The Mail Tribune (http://bit.ly/WNUAdg) reports 28-year-old Katherine McAloon was sentenced to 28 months in prison and 33-year-old Richard Mowery was sentenced to 90 days in jail and $10,000 restitution.

Ashley's mother, Lori Earp, showed the courtroom a lock of hair she said was all she had left of her daughter. Stepfather Justin Earp described Ashley as a bright and compassionate girl who wanted to be a marine biologist.
