Man to change plea in teen drug death case


CONCORD (AP) — A man who pleaded not guilty to giving a 17-year-old girl a powerful painkiller that caused her death is scheduled for a change of plea hearing.

Mark Ross is charged in connection with the death of Evangelique "Eve" Tarmey, who died in a Rochester motel of acute fentanyl intoxication in October.

Tarmey's mother, Jazzmyn Rood and Ross' boyfriend, is charged with concealing knowledge and giving false information to police about the drug's distribution.

Ross and Leslie Aberle were scheduled for a joint trial in July in federal court. Instead, Ross, who pleaded not guilty in February, is scheduled for a change of plea hearing on July 18.

Messages were left with his lawyers and a prosecutor. There was no change for Aberle as of Thursday afternoon.

A police detective testified Ross said he thought the drug was heroin.
