Man found guilty in drug-related death of Saint John teen

A man has been found guilty of criminal negligence causing the drug-related death of a Saint John teen more than three years ago.

Richard Valiquette was charged after the body of Gavin Adams was found in a parking lot in the city's north end in Dec. 2013.

Investigators believed Adams had been given a hallucinogenic drug, which caused his death.

A charge of manslaughter against Valiquette was later dropped.

He'll be sentenced at a later date.
