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 (http://bit.ly/15YDVm2 ) 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.
