SAN DIEGO - An Escondido man who sold fentanyl-laced pills to a Camp Pendleton Marine, leading to the victim's fatal overdose, was sentenced
today to 14 years in federal prison.
Kyle Anthony Shephard, 29, pleaded guilty earlier this year to selling four pills containing the powerful synthetic opioid to the unidentified 25-
