WILTON — A second man awaiting sentencing in a Farmington drug overdose death is accused of violating bail conditions by failing a drug test.

Wilton police Sgt. Chad Abbott arrested Roy Gordon, 42, of Wilton after doing a bail check on him Wednesday. Gordon had pleaded guilty to unlawful furnishing of a scheduled drug — morphine in September in connection to his girlfriend Marilyn Rider’s overdose death in November 2010.

Gordon could not wake her the day after a birthday party at her home at 103 Silver Maple Lane, he previously told police.

Gordon was given a urine test and had cocaine and marijuana in his system, Wilton Sgt. Chad Abbott said.

Gordon’s son, Seth Gordon, 23, of Wilton was picked up Saturday on a violation of condition of release charge by Wilton police. He had failed a drug test and had cocaine in his system, Abbott said.

He pleaded guilty to unlawful furnishing of a scheduled drug — morphine in September.

The two men are being held without bail. They are scheduled to be sentenced in November.

They are two of five co-defendants in the case.
