EDWARDSVILLE, IL (KTVI) – A Madison County grand jury charged a 30-year-old woman Thursday in connection with a heroin overdose earlier in the year.

According to prosecutors, Jessica Burris was indicted on one count of drug-induced homicide for her role in the death of Kyle Perry.

Police determined Burris provided Perry with the heroin that ultimately led to his death.

Burris, a Granite City resident, also faces two additional charges of unlawful delivery of a controlled substance.

If convicted, she faces up to 30 years in prison on the drug-induced homicide charge and up to seven on each additional charge.
