MAYS LANDING — An Atlantic City man has been charged in the October 2018 fatal overdose of an Egg Harbor Township woman, authorities said Wednesday.
Kevin Green, 28, was charged with first-degree strict liability for drug-induced death, the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office said in a news release. Samantha Moore, 25, died Oct. 27, 2018, from fentanyl toxicity.
Green, who was arrested Tuesday in Absecon on an unrelated matter, also is charged with third-degree distribution of a controlled dangerous substance, third-degree distribution of a controlled dangerous substance in a school zone and third-degree possession of a controlled dangerous substance.
An investigation by the Prosecutor’s Drug Related Death Squad showed Moore bought the fentanyl from Green in Atlantic City the day she died, according to the release.
Green is in the Atlantic County jail awaiting a detention hearing, which has been tentatively scheduled for Monday.
Egg Harbor Township police assisted with the investigation.
