A California teenager has been charged with murder for allegedly dealing fentanyl drugs to another teen which led to an overdose fatality.
Eighteen-year-old Alfred Urrea issued a non-guilty plea and is being held on a $1 million bail with a pre-preliminary hearing set for Tuesday. Adrian Alloway, another 18 year old, passed away from a fentanyl overdose at the end of August.
This is the second time San Bernardino County authorities have brought murder charges due to a fentanyl poisoning.
“In cases such as this, where murder is alleged, we believe we can prove beyond a reasonable doubt the dealer knowingly understood the dangers of fentanyl, and still chose profits over human life when supplying drugs to the victim,” District Attorney Jason Anderson said.
Fentanyl is a growing problem, especially among young people across the country. (Read more from “Teen Charged With Murder Over Fentanyl Overdose Death” HERE)
