Richmond police arrested a woman on charges of second-degree manslaughter and controlled substance trafficking (carfentanil or fentanyl derivatives) Wednesday following an overdose death in April.

On April 20, officers were called to the overdose at a residence and found a man who had died, according to an arrest citation.

Police searched the man's phone and found a text message conversation between him and Jenny Rogg, 33, Bellevue, Kentucky, in which the two were arguing about a drug transaction.

Officers knew where Rogg was staying and reviewed surveillance video of a drug transaction between the victim and another male, the citation states.

Police took Rogg to the Richmond Police Department for an interview, and she said she bought suspected heroin on April 19 from another person and sold it to the victim on April 20.

On May 6, police received a toxicology report that revealed the victim had a lethal amount of fentanyl in his system.

Officers also secured recorded conversations between Rogg and the man who was seen in the surveillance video. In those conversations, Rogg "made several admissions," the citation states.

She was taken to the Madison County Detention Center, where she remained Thursday afternoon, according to online jail records.
