(WTIC-AM) -- A Bristol man appeared in court today, on charges connected to a drug overdose death. 

Matthew Fazzino went before a judge in Bristol Superior Court.  

He is charged with manslaughter and drug dealing in a fatal overdose that took place in May in Plymouth.  

Fazzino was taken into custody in Bristol when police and federal Homeland Security officials raided a home where drug dealing was allegedly taking place, on 55 Cold Springs Road.  

The house is a $300,000 contemporary built in 2004, in a neighborhood of similar well-maintained homes.  

Police say they had been investigating drug dealing at that address for months.  

The judge set Fazzino's bond at $1-million in the overdose, and $200,000 on other drug charges.
