Authorities were able to determine that Anthony Reinzi provided the victim with the fentanyl that led to his or her death, according to a news release.

Police worked with the state attorney’s office to convene a grand jury and after hearing the evidence, they indicted Reinzi on charges of first-degree murder and death caused by the unlawful distribution of fentanyl.

He is being held in Georgia on unrelated charges but will eventually be extradited to Florida.
