Arrest made in heroin death

A Dixon, Illinois woman is charged in connection with a 2013 overdose death.

Linda Hoggard, 59, is charged with two counts of involuntary manslaughter.

On September 20, 2013, Dixon police responded to a call of a man not breathing and found a 54 year old dead.

In recent weeks investigators uncovered new information that revealed that Hoggard allegedly unintentionally killed the man by injecting him with heroin.

On Friday Hoggard was taken into custody at the Ogle County Jail, where she had gone to turn herself in on an unrelated charge.  She has since been transported back to the Lee County Jail.
