NORTHAMPTON COUNTY MAN CONVICTED OF SELLING DRUGS LEADING TO FATAL MILFORD OD

Jose Maldonado

A Bucks County jury on Thursday, March 3, 2022, convicted a 46-year-old man of selling the heroin/fentanyl that killed a man at a Milford Township cemetery in November 2019. 

Jose David Maldonado, of Easton, was found guilty of drug delivery resulting in death, possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, involuntary manslaughter, criminal use of a communication facility, and recklessly endangering another person. 

Common Pleas Judge Jeffrey L. Finley revoked Maldonado's bail and deferred sentencing for 60 days following the verdict. 

For three days, jurors heard testimony and reviewed evidence showing Maldonado provided the deadly drugs that killed Jerry Carpenter, 23, of Perkasie. The investigation also found one of Carpenter’s friends suffered violent seizures from the drugs and was hospitalized.
