Man charged in overdose death of 22-year-old N.H. woman pregnant with twins

CLAREMONT, N.H. (AP) — A man has been charged in a drug overdose death of a woman who was pregnant with twins, police in New Hampshire said.

A Sullivan County Superior Court judge ordered Christopher Santolucito, 36, of Claremont, held without bail Wednesday in connection to the February death of Kacey Grizzaffi, 22, of Lebanon.

Santolucito faces two counts of sale of a substance represented to be heroin; two counts of sale of a substance represented to be fentanyl; a count of sale of a substance represented to be heroin, death resulting; a count of sale of substance represented to be fentanyl, death resulting; and two counts of second-degree assault related to the stillbirth of Grizzaffi’s two fetuses.


Claremont police said they believe Santolucito gave Grizzaffi the drugs just before her death, which was caused by fentanyl toxicity.

Police initially charged Santolucito with conspiracy to commit sales of a controlled drug.

A phone message seeking comment from Santolucito’s attorney was left Thursday.
