Woman responsible for NH teen's overdose death has court hearing scheduled
CONCORD (AP) — A Massachusetts woman who pleaded guilty in the fentanyl overdose death of a 17-year-old girl at a New Hampshire motel is scheduled to have a sentencing waiver and change of plea hearing Thursday.
Leslie Aberle, of Salisbury, Massachusetts, was scheduled to be sentenced Thursday in the 2015 death of Evangelique "Eve" Tarmey. The 32-year-old Aberle pleaded guilty last year to aiding and abetting the distribution of fentanyl that killed Eve Tarmey in Rochester.
The plea agreement had called for a five-year prison sentence.
Tarmey's mother, Jazzmyn Rood, and her mother's boyfriend, Mark Ross, already have been sentenced to prison. Prosecutors said Aberle and Ross drove with Tarmey to Massachusetts to buy heroin, which later was found to be fentanyl.
