The criminal complaints against Jesse Merrill, 29, Seth Nelson, 30, and Artist Sanders, 30, lay out what happened. 

Back in October, police responded to the woman's home after one of her children called 911.  She died from the toxic effects of fentanyl and heroin, according to the report.

The complaint said she bought the drugs from Merrill. He said he got them from Nelson. And Nelson said he got them from Sanders.

The men were arrested on Monday, following a nearly four month investigation.
