Prosecutors say a New York man has pleaded guilty to distributing a potent form of heroin in the Hudson Valley that resulted in three people dying.
Dennis Sica, of Hopewell Junction, pleaded guilty Monday to one-count of conspiracy to distribute heroin and fentanyl resulting in death. It carries a mandatory minimum sentence of 20 years in prison.
Prosecutors say Sica and others sold the potent heroin last year in bags stamped with the brand name "Breaking Bad."
They say the drug killed 20-year-old Anthony Delello of Beekman in December in 2013.
On Feb. 1, 2014, 31-year-old Thomas Mille, of Pawling, was found dead with several "Breaking Bad" packets near his body.
The same day, in New Milford, Connecticut, Laura Brown was found dead with "Breaking Bad" packets around her.
