COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - A 24-year-old man has pleaded guilty in federal court to selling oxycodone to a former University of South Carolina student, which resulted in her death.

According to officials, Anthony Hunt sold alprazolam tablets to the woman on January 24 an 26, 2016. The woman, who said she wanted to commit suicide, ingested the pills but did not die. On January 27, Hunt sold the woman 10 oxycodone pills that measured out to 30 milligrams each. One day later, the woman was found dead in her apartment. Officials believed the woman died of an oxycodone overdose.

Hunt was later arrested and admitted that he sold the oxycodone pills to the student knowing she wanted to commit suicide.

Hunt now faces a life sentence in federal prison.
