Pennsylvania State Police said their investigation determined Nicoletta Robinson was the drug dealer who supplied the fatal overdose narcotics, CBS affiliate WKBN reported.
Authorities have stated in testimony that the victim died of an apparent opioid overdose.
Crime-Online noted that both Pennsylvania and Ohio have been hit hard by the national opioid epidemic.
According to Pittsburgh’s NPR affiliate, PA prosecutors have used the charge of ‘delivering drugs that resulted in death’ 644 times in the commonwealth between 2000 and 2017 — more than any other state with similar statutes.
According to OverdoseFreePA, a statewide initiative dedicated to tackling the opioid epidemic, there’s been an overall drop in overdose deaths since 2016 and a drop in overdoses since 2017.

According to local newspaper The Sharon Herald, the overdose victim’s name was Margaret McConnell and prosecutors argued Nicoletta Robinson had sold the woman the powerful opioid methadone.
The prosecution’s expert witness stated in testimony that he believed McConnell had died from a methadone overdose.
Robinson’s attorney Stanley T. Booker says the defense plans to appeal the case and argue methadone was not the contributing factor in McConnell’s death.
Under sentencing guidelines, Nicoletta Robinson faces a maximum of 51 years in prison due to the various drug dealer convictions.
“We still stand by her innocence,” Booker said. “We don’t believe for a second that methadone killed (McConnell); there were a lot of other reasons.”
