A Saint Paul drug dealer and repeat felon has been charged with murder after one of his customers overdosed on a mixture that included heroin and fentanyl.

Garyegus L. Cooper, 38, was charged Wednesday in Hennepin County District Court with third-degree murder in connection with the death of a 33-year-old man in his Orono home. Cooper was charged by warrant and has yet to be arrested.
