EVELETH, MN -- An Eveleth man has been charged with murder after another man died of a drug overdose.

Back in early March, Joshua Gams, 28, was found unresponsive in Hoyt Lakes.

Authorities suspected drug use and called in the Lake Superior Drug and Violent Crime Task Force.

Through their investigation, they determined Samuel Rogers, 24, sold Gams fentanyl the night before he died.

Rogers was arrested and charged with third degree murder.
