| A New Hampshire man was sentenced to 10 to 40 years in prison for selling a fatal dose of fentanyl to a 31-year-old mother of two. Kevin Manchester, 27, faced life in prison for the January transaction that resulted in the death of Michelle MacLeod.|
On January 22, authorities said Manchester "used Michelle MacLeod to drive him to Massachusetts where he purchased fentanyl and then sold a portion of that fentanyl to Michelle MacLeod." She ingested "just a portion" of the drug and died the same day.
New Hampshire Attorney General Joseph Foster said there have been over 200 fentanyl-related deaths in the state so far in 2016.
