A DRUG dealer who left an overdose victim to die in his car is now a born-again Christian who prays for the dead woman every day, a court heard yesterday.
Abraham "Lee" Wong also rubbed up to a gram of speed into the gums of the woman as she lay comatose from overdose in the front seat of his car.
Wong, 28, pleaded guilty in the Melbourne Magistrates' Court to charges of possessing, using and trafficking drugs, and administering a drug of dependence to another person.
On February 19, Wong was partially responsible for Victoria's first fatal GHB overdose when nurse Belinda Davey, 21, mistook a bottle of his GHB -- a clear colourless liquid -- for water and drank a mouthful.
The court heard Ms Davey was drug affected and thirsty from 14 hours of dancing when she got into Wong's car to buy more ecstasy and saw the water bottle on the floor.
Police prosecutor Katrina Hall said Ms Davey quickly became unconscious after swigging from the bottle.
Instead of calling an ambulance, Wong rubbed about 10 points of speed into the woman's gums and mouth, thinking it would counter the GHB's deadly effects.
He then left her for about four hours and continued to deal drugs to ravers near the Pure Hard Dance club in Bullens Lane, Melbourne, until an off-duty police officer noticed Ms Davey slumped in the front seat and called 000.
She was pronounced dead on a car park floor 45 minutes later.
Magistrate Paresa Spanos said the crime was particularly tragic because Ms Davey might have been saved had she received proper medical treatment in time.
"This young woman could probably have been saved but these medical geniuses think they know everything there is to know about drugs," Ms Spanos said.
Since the incident Wong has become a born-again Christian and attends Bible teachings and discussions at the Christian Life Centre.
Three members of the church gave character references for Wong, saying he had found peace since the incident, prays regularly for the woman and her family and is hopeful for the future.
The court heard he was driven to drug dealing after a career in the military was ended by injury.
The court heard Wong sold GHB and other drugs for about three months before Ms Davey died.
He was also charged with possessing weapons after police raided his home in the days after Ms Davey's death.
