Man Sentenced to Prison in Connection to Benzie County Overdose Death

A judge has sentenced a man accused of running a drug house in connection to a suspected overdose death in Benzie County.

Justin Rice will spend between 5 and 14 years in prison.

The sentence stems from a case that began last year when the Traverse Narcotics Team says a man died from a suspected drug overdose.

Detectives arrested Rice after searching a home on Forrester Road in Frankfort, where they found drugs, drug paraphernalia and guns linking him to the death.
