A man who pleaded guilty to giving a 17-year-old girl a lethal dose of fentanyl at a New Hampshire motel has been sentenced to 20 years in prison.
Mark Ross, of Rochester, pleaded guilty in federal court this year in the death of Evangelique ``Eve'' Tarmey. She died last October after taking the drug at a motel. Ross and her mother, Jazzmyn Rood, were there.
The 42-year-old Ross was Rood's boyfriend. His lawyer says in court documents that Ross feels sadness and remorse, and takes responsibility for her Tarmey's death. He was sentenced Friday.
