HOWARD, Pa. (AP) — A woman has been jailed on charges she broke into a stranger's central Pennsylvania home after a night of drinking and was found by police in bed.

The Centre Daily Times (http://bit.ly/14axdj1 ) reports state police responded to an alarm about 4:15 a.m. Sunday in Liberty Township, Centre County.

That's where police say they found a broken window and 27-year-old Nicole Lynn Daugherty in the homeowner's bed. Nobody else was home at the time.

Police say the Bellefonte woman told them she had been drinking at a party hours earlier, but couldn't remember anything else — including how or why she got into the house.

Online court records don't list an attorney for Daugherty who faces a preliminary hearing Wednesday on charges of burglary, criminal trespass and criminal mischief.
