FARMINGTON — A Wilton man was sentenced Thursday to two years’ probation for furnishing drugs that caused the overdose death of a Farmington woman in November.

The man, Scott Kidder, 32, first will finish serving two years in prison for a probation violation for a prior conviction and then will serve the probation, according to Assistant District Attorney James Andrews.

Kidder is one of five people charged last month in connection with the death of Marilyn Rider, 52, who died of a morphine overdose at her Silver Maple Lane home.

The other four cases are still pending. As of Thursday, Roy Gordon and Terry Oliver were still in jail, while Seth Gordon and Erick Barnes have been released on bail.

Kidder provided the morphine that Rider took at Roy Gordon’s birthday party.

The plea agreement for Kidder, accepted by Justice Michaela Murphy in Franklin County Superior Court, also includes no use or possession of drugs or alcohol and a $400 fine.

Kidder was charged with class C furnishing of illegal drugs and could have been punished by up to five years in prison and a $5,000 fine.
