Two people have been charged in connection with a Waconia man’s death from a drug overdose in August.
Alexander Brent Finney, 24, of Chaska, was charged this week with third-degree murder and Nicole Elizabeth Marini, 26, of Fridley, was charged with aiding and abetting third-degree murder.
Carver County sheriff’s deputies were called to the 600 block of E. 1st Street in Waconia about 6:30 p.m. Aug. 15 concerning an unresponsive man. They found evidence of intravenous drug use and suspected Jeffrey Jason Hanson, 33, had overdosed on controlled substances. Hanson was rushed to a hospital, where he died.
Deputies recovered needles and suspected heroin from the residence. The heroin tested positive for fentanyl, Sheriff Jason Kamerud said.
Finney remained in the Carver County jail on Thursday. Marini was released Wednesday on $30,000 bail.
