Man to plead guilty to giving Rochester teen Eve Tarmey the fentanyl that killed her

The Associated Press

CONCORD (AP) — A plea agreement for a man accused of giving a 17-year-old girl a powerful painkiller that caused her death at a New Hampshire motel calls for a 20-year prison sentence.

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

The 42-year-old Ross initially pleaded not guilty in federal court. A document filed Monday says he's agreed to plead guilty on July 18 to distributing a controlled substance to a person under age 21, with death resulting.

Co-defendant Leslie Aberle, who also pleaded not guilty, is scheduled to change her plea on July 18.

Jazzmyn Rood, Tarmey's mother, is charged with concealing knowledge and giving false information to police. She's pleaded not guilty and faces trial in September.
