A Chicago man was charged with drug-induced homicide for allegedly selling fentanyl-laced heroin to a 33-year-old Wonder Lake man, who died after ingesting it.
Antione Sullivan, 38, of the 6100 block of South Evans Avenue in Chicago, was charged with drug-induced homicide, a Class X felony.
A criminal complaint alleges Sullivan unlawfully delivered heroin and fentanyl to Jeffrey Nanstiel on February 16.
Nanstiel ingested the substances shortly after buying them and died, the complaint said.
According to an obituary, Nanstiel died at the age of 33 on February 17 at his home in Wonder Lake.
A forensic pathologist ruled that Nanstiel died from the adverse effects of heroin and fentanyl, court documents show.
On Thursday, the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Task Force communicated with Sullivan and organized a drug deal.
Sullivan agreed to sell $500 of heroin to undercover officers, court documents show.
Sullivan arrived at the meeting place and was arrested by task force members while he was possessing multiple bags of heroin.
He also had the phones he used to arrange the drug deal, court documents show.
Sullivan remains held at the McHenry County Jail on a $100,000 bond. He is scheduled to appear in court Tuesday morning.
