Lisa Robin Kelly’s toxicology results reveal that the actress died of multiple drug intoxication, according to a Jan. 3 Us Weekly report. The 43-year-old “That 70s Show” star died last August shortly after checking into rehab for substance abuse problems.

The Los Angeles County Coroner’s Department made the multiple drug intoxication determination, and ruled her death accidental, but did not disclose what types of drugs were involved.

According to People Magazine, the actress had a history with drugs and was arrested at least four times over the past three years for DUI, spousal abuse and assault. At the time of her death, Kelly’s agent Craig Wyckoff told People that she “addiction problems that have plagued her these past few years,” adding that Kelly had voluntarily checked herself into a treatment facility earlier in the week.

TMZ, which first broke the story, reports that an autopsy was performed immediately after Kelly’s death, but it did not identify the cause of death, and the coroner’s office had been waiting on the toxicology reports. A few days prior to her death, the actress was hospitalized with a blood alcohol level of .34.

Kelly played Eric Forman's older sister on the hit television show. A full coroner’s report will be released in two weeks, TMZ reports.
