2 Alleged Drug Dealers Charged With Murder in Minnesota
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Minnesota prosecutors say two alleged drug dealers have been charged with murder in connection with two separate overdose deaths in the Twin Cities.
A criminal complaint says 38-year-old Gregory Loupe of Minneapolis was charged in connection with the death of 46-year-old Maria Dalton.
The complaint says one of Dalton's daughters called police after she found her mother unresponsive on April 7. Officers found a brown substance containing heroin and fentanyl, as well as numerous pills in the Edina woman's bedroom.
Eric James Aguilera of Ramsey was charged with third-degree murder in connection to a December overdose death. The Hennepin County Medical Examiner says the death was accidental and caused by heroin and cocaine.
The two deaths are unrelated. Both men remain jailed on $500,000 bail.
