GEORGETOWN, Ohio (AP) - Authorities say a grand jury in southeast Ohio has charged three people with selling drugs that resulted in three people dying from fatal overdoses this year.

A woman and two men were indicted Thursday on involuntary manslaughter charges in Brown County. Each face more than 20 years in prison if convicted on all charges, which include corrupting another with drugs and trafficking in drugs.

An assistant Brown County prosecutor said in a statement that the woman and one of the men sold fatal doses of heroin and that the second man sold the powerful synthetic painkiller fentanyl to someone who died.
