Cumberland Co. man charged with supplying heroin that caused death

Posted: Updated:
CARLISLE, Pa. (WHTM) -

A Boiling Springs man has been charged with supplying William Lee Westmoreland the heroin that ultimately killed him.

Westmoreland, 22, died at his home on February 6. At his apartment, Carlisle Police Department found bags of heroin stamped with the words "Black Out." That day and the  next, police successfully purchased heroin, with the same markings, from Somwang Kakhankham. They also found similar bags at Kakhankham's home.

A witness said they say Kakhankham, also known as Jeff, leaving Westmoreland's home the day he died. Carlisle Police say Kakhankham also told others that he provided heroin to Westmoreland.

The coroner's report shows Westmoreland had a high level of morphine in his blood at the time of death (heroin turns into morphine once it enters the blood stream).

Kakhankham is charged with delivering drugs and delivery resulting in death.
