Two people who were charged in the death of a North Cape May man this past summer have been indicted; a third is facing drug-related charges.

Cape May County Prosecutor Jeffrey Sutherland says three people have been indicted on the following charges:

– 43-year-old Susan E. Mazzone of Cape May Court House was indicted for Drug Induced Death, a crime of the first degree; Possession with Intent to Distribute a Controlled Dangerous Substance (three counts), crimes of the third degree; and Conspiracy to Distribute a Controlled Dangerous Substance, a crime of the third degree.

– 31-year-old Lauren M. Dorff of Villas was indicted for Drug Induced Death, a crime of the first degree; and Possession with Intent to Distribute a Controlled Dangerous Substance, a crime of the third degree.

– 44-year-old Sherman R. Martin of Cape May Court House was indicted for Possession with Intent to Distribute a Controlled Dangerous Substance (two counts), crimes of the third degree; and Conspiracy to Distribute a Controlled Dangerous Substance, a crime of the third degree.

Authorities say on July 21, 2018, 35-year-old Eric Nolan was found unresponsive inside his home in North Cape May. Paramedics and Officers from Lower Township attempted to resuscitate Nolan but were unsuccessful. A death investigation was immediately initiated by Detectives from the Cape May County Prosecutor’s Office and the Lower Township Police Department. On August 10th, the three people listed above were charged in connection to Nolan's death.

Individuals charged with a first degree crime can be sentenced to 10 to 20 years in state prison and third degree crimes can carry a sentence of three to five years in prison.
