Woman pleads guilty to charge linked to Fargo musician's fatal heroin overdose
Nicole Wadsworth, 24, pleaded guilty to a charge of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute and distributing a controlled substance resulting in death.
She faces a possible maximum sentence of life in prison and a minimum of 20 years, Assistant U.S. Attorney Chris Myers said. Sentencing will take place in March.
Wadsworth was involved in distributing the heroin that 26-year-old Seth Lund injected into Conner, Myers said.
Lund pleaded guilty in October to injecting heroin into Conner’s arm on June 6 while in a Fargo residence with Wadsworth and 27-year-old Nathan Evenson of Fargo. Conner died shortly after from a heroin overdose.
A conspiracy charge against Evenson is pending. Lund’s sentencing is scheduled for Jan. 23.
