CARIBOU, Maine — The Aroostook County grand jury has indicted four people in connection with two drug-related deaths in the region earlier this year.

Brandy Hartt, 21, and David Goodall, 25, both of Houlton, each were indicted on charges of aggravated trafficking in Schedule W drugs in connection with the death of 26-year-old Clayton Codrey of Houlton. Codrey died Jan. 13 after ingesting a combination of methadone, Xanax, alcohol and other drugs, according to Aroostook County District Attorney Neale Adams.

Hartt and Goodall are alleged to have sold methadone to Codrey, a drug that authorities say caused his death.

The two are facing a minimum mandatory sentence of four years in jail for the crime and could receive a maximum of 30 years in prison.

Also indicted were Ashley Martin, 24, and Steven Doughty, 47, both of Caribou, in connection with the Feb. 10 death of Tena McGraw, 29, of Caribou.

Martin has been charged with aggravated furnishing Schedule W drugs, while Doughty has been charged with aggravated trafficking in Schedule W drugs.

McGraw died after ingesting Fentanyl and other drugs that allegedly were procured from Martin and Doughty.

Doughty also was indicted on charges of unlawful trafficking of scheduled drugs and criminal forfeiture.

All four face court hearings in the near future.
