    BOSTON - A drug dealer convicted of manslaughter when one of his customers overdosed on fentanyl has been sentenced to serve 8-10 years in prison.

    ”I think justice is done when somebody who sells drugs that essentially kills somebody’s son or daughter ends up in prison for it,” said Mass. Police Chief’s Association representative Chief William Brooks said.

    Carlos Hunter, 33, was convicted in connection to Joshua Miller’s death last week. Miller purchased fentanyl from hunter an hour before he was found unresponsive at a house on Eastern Avenue in Lynn in 2015.

    Hunter was charged with involuntary manslaughter in Miller’s death.

    Miller’s family was in court Thursday morning to deliver a victim impact statement before the sentencing.

    “Hopefully one more family won’t lose a child, a father and brother to this,” Miller’s mother, Diane McEvoy said.
