Police: Iowa Man Sold Heroin to Man Who Overdosed
DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) - A Davenport man has been accused of selling heroin to a man who later died from an overdose.
The Quad-City Times reports 50-year-old Cornel Miller was arrested Thursday in connection with the Wednesday death of 53-year-old Daniel Charles Hansen, also of Davenport.
Davenport police say Hansen died at an area hospital following a medical emergency reaction. Investigators determined he ingested heroin he had just purchased from Miller. They later searched Miller's apartment for evidence.
Miller has been charged with delivery of a controlled substance and involuntary manslaughter. He is currently at the Scott County Jail on a $50,000 cash-only bond. Records do not list an attorney.
