Nearly a year after a Staunton teenager died of a drug overdose the FBI has charged a man who allegedly gave him methadone.

Twenty-one-year-old Matthew James Mahone faces a distribution charge in federal court.

Investigators say Mahone and 14-year-old Jason Panzino were among a group of people camping last April in Augusta County. Court records say Mahone gave methadone pills to at least three campers, including Panzino.

The eighth-grader at Shelburne Middle School died from an overdose of the painkiller.
