CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - The mother of a 17-year-old girl who died of an overdose of a powerful painkiller last fall has been sentenced to two years in prison on charges of concealing knowledge and giving false information to police.

Jazzmyn Rood was the mother of Evangelique “Eve” Tarmey, who died in October 2015 in a Rochester motel of acute fentanyl intoxication. Rood was sentenced in federal court Friday. WMUR-TV reports she will get credit for the year she has been in custody.

Mark Ross, Rood’s boyfriend, pleaded guilty earlier this year to giving Tarmey the lethal dose of fentanyl, which he thought was heroin. He was sentenced to 20 years in prison.

A lawyer for the 42-year-old Rood had asked that her sentence be the time she already served. Prosecutors asked for 32 months.
