CINCINNATI (WKRC) - A Cincinnati man is facing 20 years in prison for dealing fentanyl that caused an overdose death.

Deonte Dickey, 21, was sentenced Thursday for his role in a December 2016 death. Court documents say Dickey, also known as “Lil Tay,” “Ching Ching” and “Richie,” dealt heroin, fentanyl and cocaine from January 2016 to March 2017.
