Two Cumberland County men have been charged with third-degree homicide for delivering heroin that caused the death of a Silver Spring Township man, according to police.

Township police said they arrested 23-year-old Alec K. Laessig of Camp Hill and 20-year-old David Koker of Mechanicsburg.

Both men also face related drugs charges.

The 21-year-old victim, who was not identified in a police news release, died Monday morning at a home in the 1100 block of W. Trindle Road where he lived with his parents.

Heroin and drug paraphernalia were found at the scene, police said.

Laessig and Koker were sent to Cumberland County Prison on $500,000 bail each.

A preliminary hearing was scheduled Feb. 26.
