SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A woman was sentenced Wednesday to six years in prison by a San Francisco federal judge in the deaths of a father and his toddler son who died in 2019 from a fentanyl overdose, federal prosecutors said.

Leanna Zamora, 29, was convicted a year ago after pleading guilty to conspiring with two other people to supply fentanyl to Patrick O’Neill, 29. O’Neill, of Santa Rosa, and his 13-month-old son died in September 2019.

Lindsay Williams, 32 and Shane Cratty, 26, were also convicted in connection with the fentanyl distribution conspiracy. They pleaded guilty to charges of fentanyl sales and were sentenced in November to seven years and eight years in prison, respectively.

Prosecutors said in court documents that Cratty drove Williams to meet with Zamora, who sold her the fentanyl. Williams then gave the fentanyl to Cratty, who delivered it to O’Neill.
