Police north of Toronto have laid multiple charges against four suspects after the death of a 28-year-old woman from a fentanyl overdose.

York Regional Police say the woman was found dead at a home in Whitchurch-Stouffville, Ont., on the evening of Feb. 2, and the cause of death was fentanyl.

Police allege a 24-year-old woman from Mississauga gave the woman the drugs.
