TOMS RIVER - A Manchester resident was sentenced Friday to seven years years in state prison for manslaughter after he previously pleaded guilty to supplying a 35-year-old man with the fentanyl that killed him, announced Ocean County Prosecutor Bradley D. Billhimer.

Dandre Tubbs, 34, will be required to serve at least 85% of his sentence before he is eligible for parole under New Jersey's No Early Release Act, according to the statement from the Prosecutor's Office.

State Superior Court Judge Lisa A. Puglisi also sentenced Tubbs to concurrent sentences for fentanyl distribution and fentanyl possession with intent to distribute - seven years and four years, respectively. Tubbs pleaded guilty to all of the charges on June 13, according to the statement.

One year ago this month, Manchester Police Department officers were dispatched to a home in the township for a report of an unresponsive male. When the officers arrived, they discovered that the victim was already dead from an apparent drug overdose, the statement said.

Investigators from the Major Crime Unit of the Prosecutor's Office and Manchester Police detectives investigated and determined that the victim - who has not been identified - had acquired fentanyl from Tubbs on Aug. 15. The victim died the next day.

A toxicology report confirmed the presence of fentanyl in the victim's system. The Ocean County Medical Examiner's Office ruled that fentanyl was the cause of death, all according to the Prosecutor's Office.

Tubbs was arrested on Aug. 19 by Manchester Police during a motor vehicle stop. He was taken to the Ocean County Jail in Toms River where he has remained since that date.

Supervising Assistant Prosecutor Kristin Pressman and Assistant Prosecutor Victoria Veni handled the subsequent criminal case on behalf of the state of New Jersey.

The Ocean County Sheriff's Office Crime Scene Investigations (CSI) Unit also participated in the investigation.

    Examples of Aphorism in Literature
    Don’t count on things that haven’t happened yet because something unexpected could occur.
    Thomas Jefferson also mirrored this general idea when he said, I find that the harder I work, the more luck I seem to have.
    This is especially true if the excuse is a lie.
    Want a few more.
    They’re easy to remember and pass down through generations because they’re concise.

    Oftentimes, it makes sense to delegate tasks.
    The original saying was, Eat an apple on going to bed, and you’ll keep the doctor from earning his bread.
    From there, you can build your story around it.

    Not so much.
    Not only that, but you can use aphorisms in your writing to summarize your central theme.

    The early bird gets the worm.
    Another success aphorism comes from Chris Grosser.
    The part in Star Wars where Yoda says, There is do, or do not.
    Washington also said, It is better to offer no excuse than a bad one.
    Sometimes, though.
    Today, calling someone a Jack of all trades is usually a jab because it implies that their knowledge is superficial.
    Your stories can benefit from this method too.
    But one key difference is that for a phrase to be truly aphoristic, it needs to be a short statement.
