GREENWOOD, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Eighth Circuit Solicitor David M. Stumbo announced the sentencing of a Greenwood County drug dealer for selling Fentanyl that led to man's overdose death. 

26-year-old Ocatvious Calliham was sentenced to 20 years in prison. On May 8, Calliham pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter and distribution of Fentanyl charges. 

The solicitor's office said authorities responded to a home on August 10, 2017 after receiving a report of an unresponsive male in the home. Greenwood County Coroner Sonny Cox pronounced the man dead from an apparent overdose of Fentanyl. 

Greenwood Drug Enforcement agents determined Calliham sold the man the drugs and performed a controlled buy to obtain Fentanyl pills from him. Calliham was taken into custody after the controlled buy was completed. 

"We will continue to fight the opioid epidemic with all of the tools available to us under the law, including homicide indictments for drug dealers who are pushing deadly, concentrated amounts of fentanyl onto our streets," Solicitor Stumbo said.
