SELINSGROVE— A Selinsgrove man who in 2017 received a 15-month to 3-year prison sentence for a drug offense resulting in death is back in prison after a parole violation.

George I. Botticher, 28, was charged in December by a state Game Commission officer with having a firearm, a felony offense for a convict.

Botticher was linked to the 2016 heroin-related overdose death of John-Michael Arcuri, 31, of Middleburg, and he pleaded guilty a year later to a delivery of heroin.

He is scheduled to appear before District Judge John H. Reed, of Selinsgrove, on Tuesday at a preliminary arraignment for the firearm offense.
