MONROE, Conn. -- A 21-year-old Monroe man was charged with assault in connection with an overdose of a woman who bought Fentanyl-laced heroin from him in July, according to the Connecticut Post.

Nicholas Ludwig had earlier been arrested on drug sale charges following the July 2 overdose of a woman in Monroe, the Connecticut Post reported. While being arraigned in Bridgeport on Tuesday he was also charged with first-degree assault and reckless endangerment, according to the Connecticut Post. It is believed to be the first time in the Bridgeport court that someone has been charged with assault in connection with an overdose, the Connecticut Post said.
