    Two New York men are charged with the overdose deaths of three people, including a 35-year-old New Milford woman. Investigators say they sold the victims a brand of heroin known as "Breaking Bad."

    Two accused heroin dealers could spend the rest of their lives in prison after three of their alleged customers died of overdoses, including a 35-year-old New Milford woman.

    Laura Brown was found dead on her bathroom floor Feb. 1 after shooting a brand of heroin known as “Breaking Bad,” according to a complaint filed by the Drug Enforcement Administration.

    The men held responsible for selling her the drug, Dennis Sica, 36, and John Rohlman, 25, of Duchess County, N.Y., are charged with distributing the heroin used in the fatal overdose.

    The arrests stem from an investigation launched after the first of the three deaths in Dec. 2013.

    Brown is one of three people who have died after reportedly purchasing “Breaking Bad” heroin from Sica and Rohlman, according to a release from the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York.

    Sica and Rohlman were due in court Thursday.
