AMHERST, Mass. (AP) - A New Hampshire man facing an involuntary manslaughter charge for allegedly selling the heroin that led to the overdose death of a UMass student in 2013 faces arraignment.

Prosecutors say 27-year-old Jesse Carrillo, of Derry, will be arraigned Thursday in Hampshire Superior Court.

Eric Sinacori, of Whitehouse Station, New Jersey, was found dead in his Amherst apartment October 4, 2013.

Sinacori was working as an informant for campus police at the time. He had been under investigation for alleged drug violations but police agreed not to press charges if he cooperated with them. The move angered his parents, who said police should have helped him get the treatment he needed. The university has since ended the informant program.

It’s not clear of Carrillo has an attorney.
