DOYLESTOWN — Lucas Mulloy, 21, of Coopersburg, was sentenced to eight to 16 years in state prison after pleading guilty June 18 to charges including drug delivery resulting in death and involuntary manslaughter, the Bucks County District Attorney's office said on its Crimewatchpa.com page.

The charges are in connection with the July 2018 death of 54-year-old William Allen, of Sellersville, the DA's office said. 

The Bucks County Detectives Drug Strike Force and Perkasie Borough Police Department investigated the case, which was the first in the county in which three people up the chain of suppliers for a fatal overdose were charged, the DA's office said. 

"Every life is important," Assistant District Attorney Ashley Towhey said in the release. "And any time a life in Bucks County is taken, we will fight to hold all those responsible to account."

Mulloy's two co-defendants, Daniel Alan Pine, 29, and Rachel Kathryn Lambrecht, 27, are scheduled for court appearances later this year, the DA's office said. 

Police found Mulloy sold purported heroin to Lambrecht who sold a portion of the drugs to Pine who provided the drugs to Allen, the DA's office said. 

At the time, Allen had been clean about a month before relapsing, the DA's office said. 

In a victim impact statement, Allen's sister described him as a loving brother and devoted caretaker to their ailing father, the DA's office said. 

Investigators traced the drugs' path by following a trail of text messages, the DA's office said. 

Medical examination found Allen's death was from a mix of heroin, fentanyl and para-fluoroisobutrylfentanyl, the DA's office said. 

"Residue containing the same combination of drugs was found near Allen's body in baggies labeled 'Boogie Man,'" the DA's office said in the release.

The sentence was negotiated, the DA's office said. The guilty plea and sentencing were before Judge Brian McGuffin, the DA's office said.
