A California woman has pleaded guilty for playing a role in a drug ring, one which led to one Marine dying of an overdose.

Pacoima resident Jessica Sarah Perez, is scheduled to be sentenced in May for conspiracy to distribute and possession with intent to distribute controlled substances.

The woman was part of a narcotics ring, operated by several civilians and two US Marines.

Two years ago, the group -which included Lance Cpl Anthony Ruben Whisenant and Cpl Ryan Douglas White- were charged in a 14-count indictment.

According to Patch, one of the Marines who was purchasing drugs died from a fentanyl overdose.

White is charged with being an accessory after the fact for allegedly attempting to thwart the attempts to apprehend Whisenant.

The drugs were reportedly supplied by Jordan Nicholas McCormick, who had a trove of illicit drugs, including LSD, ecstasy, cocaine, and fentanyl-laced oxycodone.
