A 44-year-old Bergen County man has been accused of killing a Ramsey resident with a drug concoction in place of heroin and then had his teenage daughter destroy evidence, the prosecutor's office said.
The deadly mixture that included Fentanyl killed Daniel Lajterman, whose body was found last Sunday afternoon in his Roandis Court home, Bergen County Prosecutor John Molinelli said.
Darius Ghahary, of Upper Saddle River, has been charged with first-degree strict liability for drug-induced death, second-degree manslaughter, hindering apprehension and tampering with evidence. He's also charged with maintaining a drug factory and distributing heroin.
His daughter, Alynn Ghahary, 19, has been charged with hindering apprehension and tampering with evidence.
Darius Ghahary is believed to have been dealing throughout the northern Bergen
County area and anyone who has drugs from him should not use them,
According to Molinelli, Lajterman purchased from Darius Ghahary what he believed was heroin. However, he was given a "deadly poly-drug substance" that Ghahary mixed together, Molinelli said.
Fentanyl, a synthetic opiate that is 80 times more potent than Morphine, is believed to be among the substances Ghahary mixed, Molinelli said.
