Last week, Kelsey V. Williams Jr. pleaded guilty in an Ohio federal court to distributing a controlled substance that resulted in death or serious bodily injury, according to prosecutors.

Prosecutors say that on New Year’s Eve 2018 and New Year’s Day 2019, Williams distributed a fentanyl and cocaine mixture that caused four fatal overdoses and two non-fatal overdoses.

Fentanyl is an opioid often mixed with other drugs to enhance the effects, but a small amount can be deadly.

Williams was arrested in May in Minnesota and initially charged with several counts.

Williams is set to be sentenced at a later date and faces 20 years to life behind bars.
