DUNCANNON, Pa. — A 32-year-old Carlisle woman has been charged in connection to the  overdose death of a Perry County woman last year, according to State Police.

Jackie Marie Harbaugh is charged with drug delivery resulting in death in the case, State Police say. She is accused of selling drugs to the victim, who was found dead in a bathroom on North High St. in Duncannon on Sept. 30, 2020.

The investigation of the victim's death determined Harbaugh sold and delivered the drugs to the victim, police say. She was taken into custody by the Cumberland COunty Drug Task Force on a different drug-related incident, according to police.

In an interview with investigators, police say, Harbaugh allegedly admitted she sold drugs to the victim. She was charged on Jan. 9.

The investigation was a cooperative effort by State Police, the Pennsylvania Attorney General's Office, and the Cumberland County Drug Task Force.
