NEW BERN, N.C. (AP) — A grand jury in North Carolina has indicted a man in connection with a drug overdose death in 2017.

Craven County District Attorney Scott Thomas and Sheriff Chip Hughes tell news sources that 42-year-old James Bradley of Asheville was indicted for second-degree murder caused by controlled substance and sale or delivery of a schedule II controlled substance.

Authorities say Bradley, who lived in Craven County, sold fentanyl to 29-year-old Matthew Doxey in August 2017, leading to his death.

Doxey was arrested and brought from Buncombe County to Craven County. He is jailed on a $1 million secured bond and had his first appearance in court on Friday. It's not known if he has an attorney.
