ASHFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — The Connecticut State Police say 46-year-old Jessica Hill of Ashford has been arrested in connection to drugs that caused the accidental overdose of her friend.

According to police, Hill and the victim went to the victim’s workplace, CT Oral Surgery Center on Higgins Highway in Mansfield on September 8, after hours and took a bottle of morphine. They say both women injected each other with the morphine at the victim’s house in Ashford before they went to sleep that night.
