Conn. man sentenced in connection to Newtown heroin overdose death

A Connecticut man has been sentenced in connection to the heroin overdose death of a Newtown woman.  38-year old Ronald Weaver was ordered to 52 months in prison followed by 3 years of supervised release. As part of his sentenced, Weaver was ordered to forfeit two vehicles and more than $1,900 in cash seized from him at the time of his arrest.  Newtown police had responded to a home last March on a report of a 30-year old in cardiac arrest.  The woman later died at the hospital.  Her family turned over several wax folds of heroin, several empty folds and other drug paraphernalia.  An investigation revealed that she bought heroin from a man who worked as a runner conducting drug sales for Weaver.
