Authorities say a Peoria woman could be facing a life prison sentence in connection with fentanyl trafficking and a fatal overdose case.
Federal prosecutors say a Phoenix grand jury returned an indictment charging 45-year-old Fanny Madrigal-Lopez.
They say one of the charges she's facing is one count of distribution of fentanyl resulting in death.
Under federal law, that carries a mandatory minimum sentence of 20 years in prison and a maximum sentence of life in prison.
Madrigal-Lopez allegedly distributed fentanyl last November to a man who later died from ingesting it.
She allegedly used her residence for the purpose of distributing fentanyl and oxycodone from last summer through Nov. 16.
Madrigal-Lopez is detained pending a detention hearing scheduled for Aug. 24.
It was unclear Friday if she has a lawyer.
