CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - The lawyer for a man who pleaded guilty to giving a 17-year-old girl a lethal dose of fentanyl at a New Hampshire motel says he’s willing to accept responsibility for his actions.

Forty-two-year-old Mark Ross, of Rochester, and 32-year-old Leslie Aberle, of Salisbury, Massachusetts, pleaded guilty to the charge in federal court Monday in a plea agreement. It includes a 20-year prison sentence for each. They face sentencing Oct. 28.

Evangelique “Eve” Tarmey died last October. She was at the motel with her mother, Jazzmyn Rood, and Ross.

The Portsmouth Herald reports (https://bit.ly/29SlloV) Philip Utter, Ross’ attorney, said Ross was “extremely remorseful and profoundly upset” about Tarmey’s death.

Rood is charged with concealing knowledge and giving false information to police. She’s pleaded not guilty and faces trial in September.
