CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - An admitted drug dealer from New Hampshire has been sentenced to serve 15 years to life in prison for selling two fatal doses in Concord.

WMUR-TV reports (http://bit.ly/2c62mdm ) 30-year-old Benjamin Bundy pleaded guilty Wednesday and was sentenced as outlined by his agreed-upon deal with county prosecutors.

Merrimack County Attorney Scott Murray says Bundy’s case was the first time the county prosecuted a dealer for the sale of a controlled drug with death resulting.

Bundy admitted in court to selling the dose of heroin that killed 28-year-old Mathieu Nichols in December 2014. He also confirmed that he assisted in the January suicide of on-again, off-again girlfriend Jennifer Azzara by providing the 31-year-old with a particularly deadly dose.

Murray says the deaths demanded a significant sentence for Bundy.
