YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – A Warren man has been charged in the death of a woman who overdosed on fentanyl.

Roderick Means also known as “Tap Out,” 33, is incarcerated in Mahoning County Jail on an involuntary manslaughter charge. According to an indictment filed May 26 in the Mahoning County Court of Common Pleas, Means sold purported heroin to Melanie Anderson, who died after injecting the drug on April 11.

The indictment says the drug was actually fentanyl, a powerful synthetic opiate more potent than morphine.

Means was arrested on June 1 and awaits a court hearing on the charge.
