An investigation into an overdose death in Amsterdam ends with a man in jail, charged with negligent homicide.

A member of the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office responded last June to a residence of a person unresponsive in car.

Police say the victim died of a fentanyl overdose.

Christian Vega, 32, was arraigned on a six-count indictment on Friday.

Police say a search warrant executed on his home also found various drugs and items used for preparing and selling narcotics.
