Newfields pair indicted in Newmarket drug death
BRENTWOOD — A pair from Newfields has been indicted on charges related to the death of a Newmarket man who died after taking a lethal dose of fentanyl.
Jennifer Bonner, 37, was indicted by a Rockingham County grand jury this month on one count of acts prohibited with death resulting, a felony charge that carries the possibility of life in prison.
Bonner is accused of selling fentanyl to 39-year-old Christopher Marmat, who died Jan. 10 after authorities said he used the drug.
She also faces one count of acts prohibited related to the sale of less than one gram of fentanyl after previously being convicted of a prior offense.
Bonner was also indicted on two counts of forgery alleging that she used counterfeit $10 bills at a Dunkin’ Donuts in December.
Randy Bonner, 36, was indicted on one count of conspiracy to commit acts prohibited and accomplice to acts prohibited.
According to the indictments, Randy Bonner allegedly agreed with Jennifer Bonner to make the drug sale.
The indictments allege that on Jan. 9 he drove her to meet with Marmat at Service Credit Union at the Pease International Tradeport in Portsmouth, where the money was taken from Marmat, and then drove her to Massachusetts.
Marmat’s money was then allegedly exchanged with an individual in Massachusetts to purchase the fentanyl. Randy Bonner, who had also been convicted of a prior offense, then allegedly drove Jennifer Bonner to Newmarket where the drug was given to Marmat.
Marmat was later found dead in his bedroom at 5 Packers Falls Road in Newmarket.
The felony charge against Randy Bonner carries a prison sentence of 7 ½ to 15 years if convicted.
