WOLFEBORO — An Effingham woman pleaded guilty to selling fentanyl that caused the death of a Wolfeboro man.

A judge sentenced Tanya McCormack, 27, to 11 to 22 years in New Hampshire State Prison with three years suspended for selling a fatal dose of drugs to Cole McMahon, 22, resulting in his death in September 2015.

Police said McCormack met with McMahon on August 31, 2015, to sell him fentanyl. Cole ingested the drug and suffered an acute intoxication from the fentanyl causing a fatal overdose. Police said Cole was found unresponsive in his parents' home in Wolfeboro the next morning. Huggins Hospital pronounced Cole dead a short time later.

"Ms. McCormack made a choice to sell a deadly drug and it caused Mr. McMahon’s death. Today she faced the consequences of that choice," N.H. Attorney General Joseph A. Foster said.
