ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WENY) - New York State Police arrested a Rochester woman on Friday, after she allegedly supplied fentanyl to a man who died from a drug overdose in 2017. 

59-year-old Nancy Alvarez faces a slew of charges, including second-degree manslaughter and first-degree reckless endangerment. Police say back in August of 2017, Troopers responded to a home in the Town of Greenwood regarding the reported death of a 48-year-old male. An autopsy report indicated that the victim had fentanyl in his blood.  Investigators say they were able to identify Alvarez as the supplier of the victim's narcotics.  

Alvarez was remanded to the Steuben County Jail without bail, pending her appearance in Steuben County Court.
