NEW ORLEANS (AP) - The U.S. Attorney in New Orleans says 11 people have pleaded guilty in a heroin trafficking case, including two who pleaded guilty to distributing heroin resulting in an overdose death.

U.S. Attorney Kenneth Polite (poh-LEET’) says 36-year-old Terrence Taylor and 20-year-old Malcolm Bolden were the two who pleaded in the heroin death charge.

Polite says Tuesday’s guilty pleas resulted from a cooperative investigation involving the Drug Enforcement Administration, the FBI and New Orleans police.

All 11 defendants are set for sentencing on June 24. Taylor and Bolden face sentences ranging from 20 years to life in the overdose death.
