A woman reportedly died after she took cocaine on her first night out following the birth of her baby in Lanarkshire, Scotland.

The victim, identified as Becky Tollan, 23, and her sister-in-law, Pamela Tollan, went out to a bar on the evening of July 14, 2019, and partied with Barry McAuley, 40, and Martin Stewart, 34, who they met at the pub. During the party, Tollan was provided some cocaine by the two accused men. Tollan took the cocaine, began to start shaking and fitting, and died at a house in Lanarkshire, Scotland on July 15, 2019, New York Post reported.

Following the incident, McAuley, and Stewart were charged with culpable homicide after allegedly providing Tollen with the Class A drug. Their trial began on Wednesday, Nov. 9 with Tollan’s sister-in-law, Pamela Tollan, taking the stand to recall the tragic death.

According to Pamela, Tolan had just given birth to a baby boy weeks earlier and was excited about her first social event at the pub. While the pair were sitting alone at a table, two drinks arrived, allegedly ordered for them by McAuley and Stewart. Tollen and Pamela then went over to talk to the two men and soon began drinking with them. Tollan then asked the men if they had any “stuff,” Irish Mirror reported.

“I knew exactly what she meant … asking if they had any cocaine,” Pamela told the court.

One of the men then allegedly produced a “wee bag” of the drug. Tollan took the wee bag and disappeared to the bathroom to purportedly ingest it. The group later moved to a house in the area. At the house, Tollen allegedly consumed more cocaine.

“Becky was her own person. No matter how much you told her, she would not listen,” Pamela said. “I did tell her: ‘You do not need it … you are having a good time’. I told her to stop because you do not need it.”

When Pamela and Tollan were getting ready to leave the house, Tollen suddenly began to start shaking and fitting. Seeing this, Stewart asked Pamela if Tollan had “epilepsy.”

“I said no. He put her in the recovery position,” Pamela recalled.

Pamela claimed that Tollan was “constantly” fitting and was bleeding from the mouth after biting her own tongue. Even though emergency crews were called to the home, they were unable to save Tollen and she was declared dead on July 15, 2019.

Pamela told the court that Tollen's body may have been overwhelmed on her first night out after giving birth since she had abstained from drugs and alcohol during her pregnancy.

McAuley and Stewart have both pled not guilty to the culpable homicide charge against them. The trial into the incident continues.
