Austintown man faces sentencing for deadly fentanyl overdose
An Austintown man will learn his fate on Monday for his part in a deadly fentanyl overdose.
Kenneth P. Mazurkiewicz, 55, is scheduled to appear in federal court for sentencing on charges of distribution of fentanyl resulting death, and conspiracy to distribute cocaine.
Mazurkiewicz pleaded guilty to the charges last May.
According to investigators, on October 15, 2019, Mazurkiewicz and Tyron T. Scott of Youngstown were members of a drug trafficking organization that distributed fentanyl that led to the fatal overdose of a person identified in court documents only as “C.S.”.
Scott has already pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 11 years in prison.
