FARGO, N.D. (AP) -- A Wisconsin man has been convicted of selling drugs that led to overdoses in the Fargo and Moorhead, Minnesota area.

Twenty-eight-year-old Jovan Harris, of Milwaukee, is accused of selling heroin that led to three overdoses, including the death of a Moorhead man in September 2015.

A jury found Harris guilty of six counts, including possession with intent to distribute a controlled substance resulting in death and serious bodily injury.

Authorities say the heroin that Harris distributed was brought to Fargo-Moorhead from Milwaukee.

Sentencing has not been scheduled. Harris says in court documents he will file motions within the next month requesting acquittal or a new trial.
