Inmate, wife charged in connection with prison deaths
Attica, N.Y. -- A woman and her husband, an inmate at the Attica Correctional Facility, are charged in connection with the fatal drug overdoses of two other inmates in 2013.
Elizabeth and Anders Martinez are accused of smuggling heroin and marijuana into the prison.
Investigators said they are linked to the Attica inmates who died of apparent drug overdoses on the same day in December, but the couple has not been charged in those deaths.
Investigators believe the inmates thought they were taking heroin, when they were actually consuming pure fentanyl.
