LITTLE FALLS (WCCO) — A 56-year-old Browerville woman has been sentenced to 74 months in jail in connection to a prescription drug-related death.

According to authorities, Patricia Ann Taylor sold Fentanyl patches, a powerful pain reliever and a schedule II substance, to a 27-year-old Little Falls man.

The man, identified as Jason Ramsdell, died taking the drug on Feb. 12, 2010. An autopsy revealed his cause of death was because he took a lethal dose of the drug.

Taylor admitted to selling the patches to Ramsdell for $100 on the day of his death, authorities said.

In February, Patricia Ann Taylor pleaded guilty to third-degree murder.

Taylor may be credited 14 months for time served.
