Elyria man sentenced to 25 years in prison for selling fentanyl and heroin that resulted in fatal overdose of Lorain County woman

An Elyria man was sentenced to 25 years in federal prison for selling a mixture of fentanyl and heroin that resulted in the overdose death of a Lorain County woman.

Delante Lunn, 38, was convicted earlier this year of distribution of fentanyl and heroin. Lunn sold the drugs to a Wellington Village woman in February 2016. The woman died as a result of ingesting the drugs Lunn sold her, according to court documents and trial testimony.

This case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Robert Corts and Vasile Katsaros following an investigation by the FBI and Elyria Police Department, with assistance from the Lorain County Prosecutor’s Office.
