A Mankato teen and two adults now face murder charges in connection with two overdose deaths.

According to criminal complaints, Trace Hafner, Tyler Caputo and James Inman are accused of giving the synthetic drug "2-C" to friends. Authorities say the drug comes in blue pouches with gold crowns on them.

Prosecutors say Hafner gave the drug to his girlfriend Chloe Moses. Caputo and Inman are accused of giving the drug to 22-year-old Louis Folson. Both Moses and Folson died in early March.

Folson was found, not breathing, by his neighbor. She called 911 and he died about five minutes after emergency crews arrived.

Then several days later, first responders were dispatched to a house where 17-year-old Chloe Moses was having a seizure. She was taken to the hospital, where she was later taken off life support and died.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
