A man arrested on heroin charges in December has now been charged in the fentanyl-related death of a 27-year-old man.
Daniel Parrish, 42, had only been out of prison 10 months when he was arrested by the Atlantic County SWAT Team in December, with 178 packets of what at the time was suspected to be heroin and empty wax folds, Egg Harbor Township police said at the time.
He has had addresses in Atlantic City and Egg Harbor Township.
Now Parrish is being accused of causing the Dec. 10, death of Joseph Robinson. An autopsy found that the man died of fentanyl intoxication.
An investigation found that Parrish sold Robinson the fatal drug, Atlantic County Prosecutor Damon Tyner said Friday.
Parrish was arrested Thursday after a grand jury indicted him on first-degree strict liability homicide.
He was also indicted on several other counts, including distribution of fentanyl and distribution of fentanyl and heroin.
