A woman has been charged with manslaughter for a fatal overdose in Irondequoit.

Nikki Phillips, also known as Nikki Steger, was arrested Tuesday in the case.

Prosecutors say Phillips sold drugs that contained fentanyl, a powerful painkiller, to a 31-year-old woman, resulting in her death.

Prosecutors say Phillips was previously charged with criminal sale of a controlled substance in January for the case.

Phillips is being held without bail in Monroe County Jail in the case.
