A man has been arrested for allegedly giving a woman drugs that led to her death.
Authorities say that on Sunday, a Florence woman died from a suspected fentanyl overdose.
The Boone County Sheriff’s Office says deputies later identified who allegedly gave her the drugs and charged him with manslaughter, among other drug-related charges.
The man, identified as Kevin Osborne, 36, was the person who allegedly trafficked fentanyl and marijuana to the woman who later died.
Deputies went through the woman’s phone and realized Osborne did not know she had died. They used the phone to order fentanyl and marijuana from Osborne.
When the deputies learned Osborne has an active arrest warrant against him, they started to survey his home.
When Osborne left his home, deputies stopped him along Industrial Road. Deputies then arrested him on his outstanding warrant and seized fentanyl and marijuana that he had on him.
Osborne was later charged with trafficking a controlled substance and trafficking marijuana.
The next day, deputies connected with the Boone County Commonwealth Attorney’s Office in regards to the overdose death investigation.
The Commonwealth Attorney then approved additional charges against Osborne, including manslaughter and another count of trafficking a controlled substance, first degree.
Deputies took Osborne to the Boone County Detention Center, where his bond is set at $275,000.
