A Brantford man has been charged with manslaughter after another man died of a suspected fentanyl overdose.

Police responded to a Nelson Street address Friday night to help Brant paramedics with a suspected overdose.

A 46-year-old man was taken to hospital where he was subsequently pronounced dead.

Investigators found a man -who had several drugs in his possession, including suspected powdered fentanyl – in a Murray street parking lot last (Monday) night.
