A woman has been charged with manslaughter after allegedly giving a group of teenagers prescription drugs, leading to the death of a 15-year-old boy in her Mackay home.

Stacie Renee Dutaillis, 36, had been looking after a group of six teens on the night of September 30 last year when she allegedly offered them large quantities of Tramadol, an opioid medication used to treat severe pain.

Ms Dutaillis was arrested in Brisbane yesterday and has been charged with manslaughter and other offences.

Emergency services were called to the property by one of the children after a boy was found unresponsive in the early hours of the morning.

The 15-year-old was taken to Mackay Base Hospital but died from a toxic brain injury the next day.

The other five children were also treated for varying levels of illness and have since made a full recovery.

“Throughout the night, the woman showed them the pain medication and told them if they took it, they would get high,” Detective Senior Sergeant Emma Novosel from the Mackay Child Protection Unit alleged.

“She then distributed tablets to each of the children there and they ingested them and the woman also took some of the tablets herself.

“We will further allege that throughout the course of the evening the woman continued supplying the children that medication and they’ve consumed varying amounts leading to varying symptoms of illness.”

Senior Sergeant Novosel alleged the woman had been prescribed the medication to treat a chronic injury.

“She’d received a number of scripts and it would appear she didn’t take the medication and we believe she was stockpiling it,” she said.

Ms Dutaillis appeared in court today and was denied bail.
