WHITE RIVER JUNCTION, Vt. (AP) - A Vermont woman has pleaded not guilty to her alleged role in the fentanyl overdose death of a man who was found unconscious in a bathroom convenience store.

The Valley News reports (https://bit.ly/1RlJMOZ ) 24-year-old Tara Bent, of Randolph, pleaded not guilty Wednesday in Windsor Superior Criminal Court to an unlawful sale of a narcotics charge.

Police say Bent sold drugs to 30-year-old Donald Farnham, who died hours later of a drug overdose in a bathroom at Randolph Cumberland Farms on April 23.

Police say evidence determined that the drug was fentanyl, an opioid that can be up to 50 times more powerful than heroin.

Bent’s attorney says she has sought treatment for drug dependence since the incident.

Bent remains jailed at Southern State Correctional Facility on $25,000 bail.
