DOVER - A Rochester woman faces life imprisonment after being indicted on charges she allegedly supplied a fatal dose of fentanyl to a woman who, herself, had earlier been indicted on the very same charge in connection with the death of a popular Rochester bartender.
Kerry Guay, 32, formerly of Widley Road, dispensed fentanyl to Nikole Coe who ingested the drug resulting in her death, according to the indictment.
Coe, 24, was found unresponsive on April 3 in an undisclosed area of the Carroll County Jail, where she was awaiting trial for allegedly supplying fentanyl to Sarah Brooks, a popular Rochester bartender, who died of an overdose in February 2017 at the age of 46.
Coe and her former boyfriend Joshua Naples, 28, had both been indicted in the overdose death of Brooks, who worked at the former Slim's restaurant and bar in downtown Rochester.
Coe was indicted last December on one felony count of dispensing the fentanyl that allegedly killed Brooks. Naples was indicted on a similar charge in February.
Naples' charges were dropped after Coe's death due to lack of evidence.
Guay, meanwhile, remains locked up at Strafford County Jail awaiting trial on the death resulting charges as well as an August indictment on charges of attempting to smuggle fentanyl into the Dover jail in April.
Guay, Naples and Brooks all lived on Lafayette Street in Rochester at the time of Brooks' death.
The Carroll County Attorney's Office had no comment on any charges against Guay as those charges were all transferred to Strafford County for prosecution.
Deputy Strafford County Attorney Tim Sullivan, who is handling the Guay case, was not immediately available for comment.
The October Strafford County grand jury indictments were handed down on Oct. 18 and released today.
An indictment is not an indication of guilt, rather that enough evidence has been gathered to warrant a trial.
