A 36-year-old Omaha woman was charged Thursday in federal court with five counts of conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine.
Jennifer Lovings already faces similar charges in Douglas County District Court stemming from a March drug bust.
If convicted in U.S. District Court, Lovings could be sentenced to 10 years to life in prison on each charge.
The Douglas County charges against Lovings stem from a March 8 incident in which her boyfriend, Jason Welch, was shot by an Omaha police officer.
Welch, 34, died four days after officers tried to arrest him and Lovings as part of a methamphetamine ring.
Police said Welch was in a sport utility vehicle driven by Lovings. An undercover police officer in the parking lot of a Walgreens drugstore at 51st and Center Streets opened fire as officers tried to stop the SUV.
A felony charge against Lovings of attempting to injure an officer with the SUV has been dropped. She is being held on $1 million bail.
