SYCAMORE — A DeKalb woman already in jail on drug charges is also accused of supplying a man with methadone that led to his death.
Dacia R. Hensley, 38, of the 1100 block of West Lincoln Highway in DeKalb – who appeared during a hearing at the courthouse via closed-circuit TV from the DeKalb County Jail – is charged with drug-induced homicide and unlawful delivery of a controlled substance. If convicted of the drug-induced homicide charge, Hensley faces up to 30 years in prison.
Hensley was charged in July with two counts of unlawful delivery of a controlled substance, aggravated battery and resisting a peace officer.
According to court documents for the new charges, Hensley gave a man methadone pills July 10 that caused his death. A warrant was issued Aug. 29, with bond set at $250,000.
Hensley, represented by a private attorney, will appear in court again Wednesday. She is being held on a total of $350,000 bond.
