Heroin dealer sentenced for selling fatal dose to local teen

MILWAUKIE, OR (KPTV) -

A convicted drug dealer will spend the next two decades behind bars for selling heroin to a Milwaukie High School student who overdosed.

Aleksey Dzyuba will serve his 20 year sentence at the federal prison in Sheridan.

Court documents show that in 2011, Joann Bucholz admitted to supplying heroin to Dzyuba, who then sold it to Toviy Sinyayev. The 17-year-old Sinyayev slipped into a coma after taking the drug and died three days later.

Bucholz pleaded guilty to selling heroin. She will be sentenced next month.
