2 Face Murder Charges In Fentanyl Overdose Death Of 19-Year-Old Woman

WILLMAR, Minn. (WCCO) -- Two people face several criminal charges one month after the overdose death of a 19-year-old woman in central Minnesota.

The Kandiyohi County Sheriff's Office says law enforcement executed two search warrants Tuesday in Willmar, arresting a man and a woman, both 20 years old.

Both have been charged with several felonies, including first-degree manslaughter and third-degree murder for the April 16 death of a woman in a home near New London.

The Midwest Medical Examiner's Office says the victim died "from the effects of fentanyl."

Sixteen-hundred counterfeit pills were found inside the man's home, according to the sheriff's office. The investigation is ongoing.
