GREENEVILLE — A woman involved in a high speed chase through Johnson City that claimed the life of a 13-year-old last fall has agreed to plead guilty to a federal charge.

Logan Oxendine and Alicia Carver were charged in a four-count indictment in April. Both were charged with involuntary manslaughter and vehicular homicide.

In August, Carver agreed to plead guilty to the manslaughter charge. She faces up to eight years in prison and a $250,000 fine. Oxendine is scheduled for trial Nov. 6.

According to the plea agreement, Oxendine met with Carver and a 13-year-old male on Nov. 26, 2017 in Johnson City to sell them some marijuana. Carver told investigators she gave the boy a counterfeit $100 bill to purchase nine grams of marijuana from Oxendine.

After the sale took place, Oxendine told FBI agents, he discovered the $100 bill was fake and he and another person began chasing Carver’s vehicle in their own vehicle.

Oxendine told agents the 13-year-old had ripped him off more than once and that after he learned the money was counterfeit, he decided to “teach them a lesson.”

Court records state Oxendine chased Carver through the streets of Johnson City, both driving at a high rate of speed, with Oxendine ramming Carver’s vehicle from behind. The chase eventually led to the Mountain Home VA, where Carver crashed.

As a result of the wreck, the 13-year-old was killed.
