NYC prostitute linked to deaths of 3 men who died of overdoses pleads not guilty to fentanyl charges


An accused drug-pushing prostitute whose clients wound up dead from fentanyl overdoses pleaded not guilty Friday to doling out the narcotic.

Angelina Barini, 41, was arraigned Friday in Brooklyn Federal Court on charges of conspiracy to distribute fentanyl and possession with intent to distribute the drug.

Three men who met up with the Barini— including 33-year-old Cipriani Chef Andrea Zamperoni, whose body was discovered in August at a seedy Queens motel — were found dead from apparent overdoes right after spending time with the hooker, officials said.

The first alleged victim was found July 4 at the Airway Inn at LaGuardia Aiport. The body of the second, Jean-Alessander Silvero, 28, was located July 11 at the Crown Motor Inn in Woodside, family members confirmed.

Video footage from all three cases showed the prostitute with the men just before their deaths, according to a complaint filed in Brooklyn Federal Court.

A puffy-eyed Barini appeared before Judge Steven Gold in a dark blue prison jumpsuit — a far cry from the lacy black corsets seen in selfies of the blond bombshell.

The judge told her she was being charged with " distribution of Fentanyl and the consequences of that action.”
