    Maine Father of 1-Year-Old Who Died From Fentanyl Turns Himself In
    Shane Smith

    The father of a 1-year-old whose October 2018 death was linked to fentanyl exposure is in jail on a charge of child endangerment.

    Police say 31-year-old Shane Smith, of Winterport, turned himself in Thursday night. He faces the same charge as the child's mother.

    The medical examiner's office says their daughter died from acute fentanyl intoxication.

    Court documents indicate Smith told police that the mother, 33-year-old Kimberly Nelligan, of Bangor, allegedly rubbed opioid residue on the youngster's gums to help her sleep. Nelligan denied the accusation and pleaded not guilty. She's free on bail.
