The Pocono Record reported yesterday that two Pike County women were arrested and charged for an overdose death of a Lackawanna County man. This occurred after Pennsylvania State Police were in a six-month investigation.
23-year-old Nell Theresa Sheehan of Shohola and 31-year-old Rebecca S. Moore of Dingmans Ferry were taken into custody without incident on Monday, Jan. 13.
Following the overdose death of 30-year-old Angelo Michael Genell of Old Forge, Sheehan and Moore were both charged with one first-degree felony count of drug delivery resulting in death, one first-degree felony count of conspiracy to commit a drug delivery resulting in death, one first-degree felony count of possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, one first-degree felony count of conspiracy to deliver a controlled substance, and one third-degree felony count of criminal use of communication facility.
After the investigation, Pennsylvania State Police, Troup R, found that Moore sold the heroin to Sheehan, which had resulted in Genell's death.
Back on July 28, Sheehan and Genell used this heroin while also consuming alcohol, while sitting in Genell's truck on River Road in Milford Borough. Sheehan and Genell both passed out and when Sheehan awoke, she discovered Genell unresponsive and blue in color. 911 was contacted on Genell's phone, by Sheehan, before she fled the scene.

It has been confirmed by Troop R's Robert Urban that both Sheehan and Moore's bail is set at $500,000 and their preliminary hearings are set for Jan. 22, 2020.
