MAYS LANDING- An Atlantic County grand jury has returned an indictment against a 28 year-old Atlantic City man for multiple charges in connection to the October 2018 fatal overdose of a 25 year-old woman, Atlantic County Prosecutor Damon G. Tyner announced.

Offcials say Mr. Kevin Green, 28, was indicted Tuesday on the following counts:

First-degree strict liability for drug-induced death, 2C:35-9a

Third-degree distribution of a controlled dangerous substance, 2C:35-5b

Third-degree distribution of a controlled dangerous substance in a school zone, 2C:35-7.1a

Third-degree possession of a controlled dangerous substance, 2C:35-10a

Egg Harbor Township Police Department assisted in this investigation. Assistant Prosecutor Allison Eiselen represents the state in the matter.

These charges are related to the death of Samantha Moore, which occurred on October 27, 2018. Moore died in Egg Harbor Township as a result of fentanyl toxicity.

An investigation by the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office Drug-Related Death Unit revealed that Moore purchased the fentanyl from Kevin Green, in Atlantic City on the day she died.

Green is lodged in the Atlantic County Justice Facility.
