A southern New Jersey woman faces charges for allegedly causing a man's drug-related death last year.

Ocean County Prosecutor Joseph Coronato announced the arrest of Jeana Ganun on Wednesday, one day after the 34-year-old South Toms River resident was charged with manslaughter and strict liability drug induced death.

The charges stem from the overdose death of 27-year-old Eric Mills in South Toms River last May. An autopsy determined that he died from a negative prescription drug reaction, but further details were not disclosed.

Ganun's bail was set at $200,000 cash. She was served with the charges at the Ocean County jail, where she has been held since December on unrelated charges.
