Greensburg police arrested two area men Wednesday for allegedly providing a fentanyl-laced heroin dose that killed a 48-year-old woman last summer.
Julian V. Cancro, 37, of Greensburg, and Matthew T. Caughey, 46, of Youngwood, were charged with drug delivery resulting in death in connection with the Aug. 30 death of Darice R. Franke, 48.
Police were called to Cancro’s apartment on the 500 block of Highland Avenue at 4:22 a.m. Aug. 29 for a report of a woman who had overdosed. Detective Sgt. John Swank said Franke was “unresponsive” on the bathroom floor with two empty stamp bags of heroin and a hypodermic needle lying nearby.
Franke, who has lived in Greensburg and Jeannette, was taken by ambulance to Excela Health Westmoreland hospital in Greensburg where she died the next day, Swank reported.
