Man Sentenced In East Hampton Ecstasy Death
A judge issued a sentence Tuesday in the overdose death of a teenage girl from East Hampton.
According to the clerk’s office, a judge at Middlesex Superior Court ordered Jason Nedobity to serve four years behind bars.
He was accused of giving the drug ecstasy to a 16-year-old East Hampton girl, then fleeing the state for a decade.
The incident took place after a party in 2002.
Young Makayla Korpinen vomited, and had seizures with convulsions. She spent several days in a coma before dying.
Her death was considered the first in Connecticut caused by Ecstasy.
