Man Accused of Supplying Lethal Drugs Charged With Negligent Homicide

A man accused of supplying the drugs that led to a man’s death in Naugatuck has been charged with negligent homicide. 

Police went to check on the victim after a family member contacted them on Dec. 31, 2016 for help to contact him when he did not answer his phone or come to his door and officers found the victim dead in his home and drugs and paraphernalia near him, police said. 

While investigating, officers determined that 29-year-old Rodney Coriano supplied the victim with a narcotic that caused the death, according to police. 

He turned himself in to police just before 2 a.m. Friday and is due in Waterbury Superior Court today. 

Bond was set at $250,000.
