CEDAR RAPIDS (AP) — A Maquoketa man has pleaded guilty to distributing a mixture of drugs that left one person dead and injured two others.

The U.S. Attorney's Office says 22-year-old Joshua Allen Manning pleaded guilty Monday to one count of conspiracy to distribute heroin and furanylfentanyl, resulting in death and serious bodily injury.

Manning admitted at a hearing to distributing the drugs in March, leading to the injuries of two people and death of another person.

U.S. District Court Chief Judge Leonard Strand will sentence Manning after a presentence report is prepared. He faces at least 20 years in prison and could be sentenced to life.
