Man Sentenced in Teen Drug Death

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.

Rood pleaded guilty to concealing knowledge and giving false information to police. She faces sentencing in December.

A woman facing the same charge as Ross, Leslie Aberle, also pleaded guilty and is scheduled for sentencing in January.
