NH court says trial dates pushed back for 3 defendants in Eve Tarmey's overdose death

CONCORD - Trial dates for Jazzmyn Rood, Mark Ross and Leslie Aberle - defendants in the overdose death of 17-year-old Eve Tarmey, have been moved back.

Tarmey died last year at a Rochester motel of acute fentanyl intoxication that was allegedly given to her by Ross and Aberle. Rood - Tarmey's mother was charged for giving police false information about the drug's distribution that caused her daughters death.

With a cited need for additional time to review discovery and prepare for trial, Rood's trial has been moved from April 5 to June 7, while the March 23 pretrial has been moved to May 23.

Ross waived his right to a speedy trial and gave a motion to reschedule. As a result, he and Aberle's trial was pushed back with a pretrial rescheduled to July 5, and a trial now scheduled to begin on July 9.

Defendants can waive their right of a speedy trial rights within 10 days. The court finds that the ends of justice served by granting a continuance outweigh the best interest of the public and the defendant in a speedy trial, for reasons set forth in the motion.
