FDL Man Sentenced For Supplying Fentanyl That Caused Womans Death

The 42-year-old Fond du Lac man responsible for the drug overdose death of a Fond du Lac woman has been sentenced to 10 years in prison and 10 years of extended supervision on a first degree reckless homicide charge. Fond du Lac County Judge Richard Nuss sentenced Joshua Asencio this week. According to the criminal complaint Asencio provided the fentanyl that led to 34-year-old Angela Cowling’s overdose on November 2nd of 2016. He called 911 from Cowling’s apartment when she overdosed. EMT’s tried to resuscitate her, but couldn’t.  District Attorney Eric Toney feels for Angela Cowling’s family. He says his heart goes out to her family, it has been devastating and it is something no family should have to go through. Toney says fentanyl is a potent and potentially deadly drug that is sometimes mixed in with heroin. Toney also hopes that drug users and dealers after hearing of this case get the help they need to avoid a drug overdose or prison. Asencio got credit for the 440 days he already spent in jail.
