Woman charged in man's drug death


MOUNT VERNON -- A 19-year-old Mount Vernon woman has been charged with providing a lethal mix of cocaine and heroin to a 52-year-old man.

According to court documents, Patrick Brady of Stanwood was found dead Feb. 23 in a Mount Vernon hotel room with syringes and needles. Brady had injection marks on his arm.

Tarah Lynn Deutsch will be arraigned April 10 on charges of controlled substance homicide, second-degree manslaughter and delivery of a controlled substance.

Deutsch had been arrested Feb. 27 on unrelated charges.

Deutsch told police she bought heroin and cocaine that they both injected, and Brady was alive when she left the room.
