Georgia man sentenced for drug charges, Fairmont woman’s death

LEWIS COUNTY, W.Va. — A Georgia man will spend the rest of his life in prison after providing a Fairmont woman with a dose of fentanyl that resulted in her death.

A jury in January found 35-year-old Terrick Robinson, of Cartersville, Georgia, guilty of multiple charges related to drug trafficking in West Virginia from May 2018 to September 2018 and the August 2019 death of Courtney Dubois.

Robinson would travel between Georgia and West Virginia, and provide people with drugs at various hotel rooms. He and his associates additionally had at least three firearms with them during their crimes.

Robinson provided Dubois with fentanyl at a Lewis County motel. A forensic pathologist determined the fentanyl was an independent sufficient cause of Dubois’ death. Robinson later took Dubois’ body to Georgia, where he dismembered it and disposed of the body at a Bartow County landfill.

Robinson’s charges add up to a 115-year sentence. He was also sentenced to 10 years of incarceration for drug distribution resulting in death.
