Burlington County Prosecutor Scott Coffina says 35-year-old Marvin Montoya was sentenced last week on a first-degree strict liability for drug-induced death charge.

Authorities say an investigation began after 23-year-old Michael Williams was discovered by a relative in their Browns Mills home on August 11, 2020, after he failed to get up for work. An investigation revealed that Williams traveled to Trenton and bought drugs from Montoya. An autopsy determined that Williams died of fentanyl toxicity.

Coffina said in a statement,

Fentanyl continues to take a horrendous toll on the residents of Burlington County. We reaffirm our commitment to fighting the unrelenting epidemic of Substance Use Disorder with every tool in our arsenal, from expanded access to treatment through our Straight … to Treatment program, to continuing to hold drug dealers accountable by pursuing this first-degree charge in every case where the evidence supports it.

Montoya must serve 85 percent of the sentence before becoming eligible for parole.
