The other person took the drugs and died as the result of an overdose, police said. The victim’s name has not been released.

Fentanyl is an opioid that can be mixed with other drugs to enhance the effects. But a small amount can be deadly.

Police identified King as a suspect, and last week he turned himself in to police. He was charged with drug delivery resulting in death and criminal use of a communication device.
