MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Federal prosecutors say a Tennessee drug dealer has been sentenced to 20 years in federal prison for selling heroin laced with fentanyl to a man who died of an overdose.

The U.S. attorney’s office in Memphis says 57-year-old Dwayne Tullous pleaded guilty in March to causing the death of Larry House by selling heroin and fentanyl to him.

Tullous was sentenced Thursday by U.S. District Judge Mark S. Norris in Memphis. Prosecutors said House was found dead in July 2018 in his home in the Shelby County city of Lakeland, outside of Memphis. Tullous had visited House to sell him heroin and fentanyl.
