CABARRUS COUNTY, N.C. - Cabarrus County deputies have arrested and charged a suspected drug dealer in connection with the overdose death of a 21-year-old man.

Officials said Charles Allmon died of a fentanyl overdose after buying the drugs from Kayla Taylor, 27, and Anthony Hester, 33, in January.

#BreakingNews Cabarrus Co. Sheriff's Dept. arrested Kayla Lynne Taylor for "death by distribution" after man dies from fentanyl overdose. This marks their 1st murder by drug distribution case. Anthony Wayne Hester is also charged in connection to the case. @wsoctv Allison Latos (@AllisonWSOC9) September 11, 2019

Taylor is charged with second-degree murder by drug distribution and felony selling of a schedule II controlled substance.

The murder by drug distribution charge was possible through the Death by Distribution bill that was signed into law earlier this year.

The law makes it a felony to illegally sell drugs that result in an overdose death. It allows prosecutors to charge drug dealers with second-degree murder and is punishable by up to 40 years in prison.
