WHEATON, Ill. (STMW) — A west suburban man was ordered held on $1 million bond Friday, charged with selling heroin to a teenage boy who died of a drug overdose last month.
Nolan E. McMahon, 18, of Hanover Park, was charged with drug-induced homicide, according to a statement from the DuPage County State’s Attorney’s office.
John Dudek, 15, and another teenager went to McMahon’s home on July 9 and bought multiple bags of heroin, prosecutors said. The boys then went back early July 10 to purchase more.
Dudek went to his Bartlett home, took the heroin and died, according to prosecutors. An autopsy confirmed he died from a heroin overdose.
Bartlett police learned Dudek had purchased the heroin from McMahon, and police executing a search warrant found additional heroin inside his home, according to the state’s attorney’s office.
Judge Timothy J. McJoynt ordered McMahon held on a $1 million bond and set his next court appearance for 9 a.m. on Sept. 16. If convicted, hen faces up to 30 years in prison.
