CONCORD, N.H. – The third of three people charged in connection with the fentanyl overdose death of a 17-year-old New Hampshire girl in 2015 has been sentenced to five years in prison.

In a plea agreement, 33-year-old Leslie Aberle, of Salisbury, Massachusetts, pleaded guilty last month to conspiracy to distribute and to possess with intent to distribute heroin and fentanyl in the case of Evangelique “Eve” Tarmey. A judge on Tuesday accepted a five-year prison sentence recommended for Aberle.

The plea agreement superseded one last year in which Aberle agreed to plead guilty to distributing a controlled substance to a person under the age of 21 with death resulting. That would have called for at least 20 years.

Tarmey’s mother and her mother’s boyfriend are serving prison terms.
