The girlfriend of an Indiana man who killed five people in September of last year is now facing charges in connection with the murders.

Amanda Napier, the live-in girlfriend of David Ison, is facing drug and robbery charges, according to a report in the Brookville American-Democrat.

Police say Napier sent text messages and helped set up a drug buy of Oxycontin that led to the deaths of Roy Napier, 50, his estranged wife, Angela, 47; their children, Melissa, 23, and Jacob, 18, and neighbor, Henry X. Smith, 43, in Laurel, Ind. Amanda Napier is not related to the victims.

She is also accused of driving Ison to a CVS in Brookville to commit an armed robbery there.

David Ison is serving a life sentence for the murders after pleading guilty in order to avoid the death penalty.

Napier faces six to 20 years in prison if convicted.
