LONGVIEW, Wash. — A judge has set bail at $250,000 for a Washington woman accused of supplying her roommate a fatal dose of heroin.

The Daily News reports (http://bit.ly/2pxKufG ) 28-year-old Jessica Nicole Brown’s bail had been set Tuesday. Brown is accused of not calling medical personnel during or after 26-year-old Sara Marie Kirchner’s overdose.

Officers had found Brown hiding in bushes outside of the women’s apartment when they went to the call Sunday for Kirchner’s death.

Court records show Brown had told officers she sold heroin to Kirchner in the past.

The records show Brown had also told officers she sold the drug in exchange for living in the apartment.
