Police obtained an arrest warrant Friday for actor-singer Manabu Oshio, who has been convicted of using the synthetic drug MDMA, on suspicion that he gave the drug to a woman who died at a Tokyo apartment in August while in his company.

Oshio, 31, was sentenced at the Tokyo District Court in November to 1 1/2 years in prison, suspended for five years, for using the drug.
