CONWAY, N.H. (AP) - A New Hampshire woman has been sentenced to prison after pleading guilty to selling fentanyl that caused the death of a 22-year-old man.

Tanya McCormack, of Effingham, was sentenced to 11 to 22 years in state prison Thursday, with part of that time suspended.

Authorities say the 27-year-old McCormack met with Cole McMahon on Aug. 31, 2015, in Ossipee and sold him the drug, which he ingested. Police say he suffered a fatal overdose in his parents’ home in Wolfeboro and was pronounced dead on Sept. 1.

Wolfeboro Police Chief Dean Rondeau says the sentence sends a very strong message about police dedication to stopping dealers who sell drugs that could potentially kill.
