A Fairview Township man is facing charges involving drug delivery resulting in death after his neighbor overdosed in 2018, police said.

Mark Douglas Troup Jr., 48, of the 100 block of Meadowbrook Road, also is facing three other felony counts: delivery of a controlled substance, unlawful use of a computer and criminal use of a communication facility.

According to the office of Magisterial District Judge Scott J. Gross, no arraignment date has been set for Troup.

In a criminal complaint filed Monday, Jan. 13, the Fairview Township Police Department said Troup sold heroin to his neighbor, Dustin Baublitz.
