BRIDGEPORT, CT (AP) -

A Connecticut man has admitted to dealing heroin that is connected to the overdose death of a woman last year.

Thirty-nine-year-old Ramon Killings pleaded guilty to distribution charges Wednesday. He now faces up to 20 years in prison.

According to the U.S. Attorney's office, Killings was arrested in a sting operation last January when undercover investigators purchased heroin from him. Investigators had learned that Killings had sold heroin to the boyfriend of a woman who overdosed and died in December.

He will be sentenced Aug. 16.
