BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Authorities said a man fatally overdosed while staying in a Louisiana sober-living home and three of his housemates have been arrested.

News outlets cite arrest records as saying Dylan McClendon, 23, allegedly never used heroin before, but gave the three men $20 as they went to buy the drug for the four of them.

East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's deputies arrested Baylor Johnson, 19, Lambert Louviere, 24, and Tyler Castro, 24. The three are accused of completing the drug deal for heroin that killed McClendon last month.

Records said the men took the drugs together and house managers couldn't revive McClendon hours later.

Castro was arrested Friday, and Louviere and Johnson on Monday. They're in custody on principal to second-degree murder charges. It's unclear if they have lawyers who could comment.
