Hall teen arrested after deputies say he gave fentanyl to 17-year-old co-worker, who then died

A Hall County teenager has been arrested after deputies say he supplied fentanyl that killed a co-worker at the fast food restaurant where he worked.

The Hall County Sheriff’s Office took Brandon Jared Soto into custody on Friday on involuntary manslaughter charges.

The Sheriff’s Office said that Soto and the victim, 17-year-old Halaya Graciela Herrera, were taking fentanyl on July 12 at a fast food restaurant in Oakwood. Herrera began to feel sick after taking the drugs, so Soto took her home, where she overdosed.

Herrera’s mother called 911 and she was rushed to the hospital, where she died. Herrera was just a few weeks shy of her 18th birthday when she died.

Investigators determined that Soto supplied the lethal dose of fentanyl to the victim. He is currently being held without bond in the Hall County jail.
