Ryan Shields

Three men were sentenced to state prison on Monday, Nov. 28, 2022, for supplying a pressed fentanyl pill that was made to look like Percocet that killed Amanda Shields of Falls Township two years ago.

Ryan Shields, the victim’s husband, was sentenced to four to eight years in prison; Patric Hish, 33, of Brookhaven, Delaware County, was sentenced to three to six years in state prison; and Francis Nungesser, 44, of Morrisville, received a state prison sentence of 5 ½ to 12 years by Common Pleas Judge Jeffrey L. Finley

All three men pleaded guilty in August to one count each of drug delivery resulting in death.

A lengthy investigation by Bucks County Detectives and Falls Township Police concluded that the victim’s husband supplied the pill to her, and he got the pills from the two other men, leading to charges in January.
