NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) - A Connecticut man has been sentenced to prison for distributing heroin that was involved in a fatal overdose.

Connecticut U.S. Attorney Deirdre Daly says 31-year-old Christopher Fogler, of West Haven, was sentenced Tuesday to 12 months and one day behind bars, followed by three years of probation.

Fogler pleaded guilty to conspiracy to possess heroin with intent to distribute and related crimes in April.

Prosecutors say a 39-year-old man died from an apparent heroin overdose at a Milford home on January 12, 2015. An investigation revealed that Fogler and Alyssa Jelliffe sold the man $170 worth of heroin the previous evening. They were arrested on January 16, 2015.

The 23-year-old Jelliffe pleaded guilty to the same charges as Fogler on Friday. She awaits sentencing.
