ROCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — A New Hampshire woman has been charged with selling a drug to a man who overdosed and died.
Nina Batista, of Rochester, was charged with one count of dispensing a controlled drug with death resulting.
Police say the unidentified 23-year-old man died of acute fentanyl intoxication on Sept. 15.
The 22-year-old Batista was served a warrant on Friday at the Strafford County jail, where she was being held on unrelated charges. She’s scheduled to be arraigned Monday. It wasn’t immediately known if she had a lawyer and a phone number couldn’t be found for her.
