Deshawn T. Ingram, 24, of Chicago.

A Chicago man pleaded guilty to drug-induced homicide and was sentenced to six years in prison for selling drugs that killed a 35-year-old Woodstock woman, prosecutors said.

Deshawn T. Ingram, 24, of the 300 block of West 90th Place in Chicago, was indicted on one count of drug-induced homicide, a Class X felony, and unlawful possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver, a Class 2 felony.

A grand jury indictment alleged that Ingram and a co-defendant sold a controlled substance that contained fentanyl to Jessica Decker, 35, of Woodstock, in August.

The Woodstock Police Department and Woodstock Fire-Rescue District responded on August 20 after Decker was found unresponsive following an apparent overdose, prosecutors said.

Decker was found at a home in the 500 block of East Calhoun Street and was transported to the hospital where she was pronounced dead, police said at the time.

Officers found evidence of illegal narcotics in the home and launched an investigation.

The investigation revealed that Ingram and Anier L. Rose-Stovall, 22, of Woodstock, sold the drugs to Decker that led to her death, court documents allege.

Ingram pleaded guilty to one count of drug-induced homicide during a negotiated plea deal approved by McHenry County Judge Michael Coppedge.

In exchange, prosecutors dropped his charge of unlawful possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver.

Coppedge sentenced Ingram to six years in the Illinois Department of Corrections on Monday. He must serve 75% of his sentence under truth-in-sentencing guidelines.

Rose-Stovall’s case remains pending in McHenry County court and she is scheduled to appear in court on June 23 for a trial date status hearing.

The investigation was led by Detective Dolan and prosecuted by Judy Shammo of the McHenry County State’s Attorney’s Office.
