According to the Mercer County Prosecutor's Office, 19-year-old Kieran Hunt of Piscataway sold heroin to freshman Justin Warfield and shot it up with him in the Princeton music school's parking lot on Tuesday evening.
Prosecutors said Warfield, an 18-year-old from Maryland, had to be taken by ambulance early Wednesday to University Hospital in Princeton, where he was pronounced dead.
Hunt was charged on Wednesday evening with being liable for Warfield's drug death, as well as selling him the heroin, and was freed the same evening on $100,000 bail, prosecutors said.
Warfield's death comes seven months after another Rider freshman, Gary DeVercelly Jr., died after drinking at a fraternity party on the school's main campus in Lawrenceville.
