Indiana, PA: Boyfriend Charged In Woman's Methadone Death

INDIANA, Pa. -- Authorities allege a western Pennsylvania woman was killed by a lethal dose of methadone just hours before she was to be released from a hospital for an undisclosed illness.
State police say 36-year-old Aaron Sandak was taken into custody Thursday in Ocean City, Md., on charges including involuntary manslaughter in the death of 29-year-old Megan Prugh.
Prugh died at Indiana Regional Medical Center on Aug. 26. Authorities say she was awaiting discharge at the time of her death.
Investigators say tests show Prugh received an unexpected dose of methadone before she died. The synthetic opioid was not among the medications she was receiving at the hospital.
Sandak is awaiting transfer to Pennsylvania. It was not immediately clear if he had an attorney.
