Man Admits To Supplying Fatal Heroin Dose To Ex-girlfriend

PORTLAND, Maine - A Maine man who admitted to giving a former girlfriend a fatal dose of heroin has been sentenced to over a decade in federal prison.
Thirty-five-year-old Mickey Gilley, of West Bath, was sentenced to 14 years in prison Tuesday at U.S. District Court in Portland after pleading guilty over the summer. The Portland Press Herald reports Gilley is accused of supplying heroin and fentanyl to a former girlfriend who he was prohibited from contacting.
The U.S. Attorney's Office says the woman died from using the drugs and Gilley failed to contact police and emergency services.
Court records show Gilley was charged with distribution of heroin resulting in death.
