Carly Headhunter Charged with Drug-related Homicide
He will be tried in the drug overdose death of another executive recruiter, 31-year-old Thomas Wasil

Jeff Christian, the guy who started Christian & Timbers and the headhunter who got Carly Fiorina the CEO job at HP, is going to be tried for reckless homicide and involuntary manslaughter in the drug overdose death of another executive recruiter, 31-year-old Thomas Wasil, according to a centerfold story in BusinessWeek.

And after another non-lethal overdose in his house, Christian, 51, was also charged with corrupting a 17-year-old minor, the brother of Christian's 18-year-old waitress girlfriend, and inducing others to take drugs.

Authorities contend that last April Christian, Wasil and Wasil's girlfriend were drinking and doing cocaine and Christian gave Wasil "a brown power that was described as opium." Wasil did a couple of lines, ultimately drove home and was found dead in bed the next day.

The twice-married Christian is out on $150,000 bail and is scheduled to go on trial on August 22 in Ohio. His legal team includes the guy who defended Michael Jackson and Robert Blake.

Christian, who sold his stake in Christian & Timbers in 2003, was apparently asked to leave by his partners because of extended absences and erratic behavior.
