Police in Parkersburg said a resident has been charged with murder after he allegedly sold fentanyl to a man who later died of an overdose.

Media outlets report police served 26-year-old David Armstrong of Parkersburg with a murder warrant last week at the North Central Regional Jail. He's been held there after being charged Feb. 1 with possession with intent to deliver.

Police said in a news release that Armstrong is charged in the death of 28-year-old Ryan C. Danko, whose body was found at a Parkersburg residence on Jan. 31.

Armstrong faces a preliminary hearing this week in Wood County Magistrate Court.
