A man who pleaded not guilty to giving a 17-year-old girl a powerful painkiller that caused her death is scheduled for a change of plea hearing.

Mark Ross is charged in connection with the death of Evangelique "Eve" Tarmey, who died in a Rochester motel of acute fentanyl intoxication in October.

Jazzmyn Rood - Tarmey's mother and Ross' girlfriend - is charged with concealing knowledge and giving false information to police about the drug's distribution.

Ross and Leslie Aberle were scheduled for a joint trial in July in federal court. Instead, Ross, who pleaded not guilty in February, is scheduled for a change of plea hearing on July 18.

Messages were left with his lawyers and a prosecutor. There was no change for Aberle as of Thursday afternoon.

A police detective testified Ross said he thought the drug was heroin.
