South Holland woman faces drug-induced homicide charge

SYCAMORE – A DeKalb County judge set bond at $150,000 on Thursday for a South Holland woman accused of supplying fentanyl to a man who died from smoking it.

Simone C. Jones, 29, of the 700 block of East 156th Place, South Holland, is charged with drug-induced homicide and unlawful delivery of a controlled substance. If convicted, Judge Philip Montgomery said Jones could face 15 to 30 years in prison.

The total bond on warrants for her arrest was $300,000, but Montgomery ultimately set it at $150,000.

According to court records, Jones had delivered less than a gram of fentanyl, an opioid far more potent than heroin, to the victim in October 2017. It was not clear from court records where the alleged drug delivery took place.

Assistant State's Attorney Scott Schwertley said when police tried to arrest her, U.S. Marshals had to get involved because she fled.

Jones is due back in court on March 16 at 9 a.m.
