Three Allegany County teenagers have been charged with felony negligent homicide following the overdose death of an 18-year-old man.
State Police say the four teens drove from Allegany County to the Rochester area on Oct. 22 to buy heroin.
During the trip, investigators say 18-year-old Gregory Dunne, of Andover, snorted heroin and lost consciousness, but was still breathing. On the way back from Rochester, the three other people in the car thought Dunne was asleep but then noticed he wasn’t breathing. They tried to wake Dunne up but could not.
The driver, 19-year-old Robert Murray Jr., of Wellsville, dropped off 19-year-old Andrew Elliott, of Andover, and 17-year-old Spencer Carl, of Wellsville, before taking Dunne to Jones Memorial Hospital in Wellsville where he was found to be dead upon arrival.
Murray, Elliott, and Carl were each charged with one count of criminally negligent homicide. They were arraigned and remanded to the Allegany County Jail on $50,000 cash or $100,000 bond.
All three are to return to Amity Court later this month.
