Aug. 17, 2018
STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) — A Connecticut man has pleaded guilty to providing his friend with a lethal dose of heroin.
The Stamford Advocate reports that 43-year-old Christopher Brokaw, of Stamford, entered his plea Thursday to manslaughter and narcotics sales.
Prosecutors say Brokaw gave heroin to a 34-year-old Greenwich man who was found dead from an overdose in July 2017.
Brokaw issued an apology during his hearing. His attorney said afterward Brokaw was a respected member of the community until the "vicious drug" got a hold of him.
Brokaw faces up to 30 months in prison at sentencing in October.
