Feds charge second person in connection with Kentucky overdoses

A second person has been charged as a source of the drugs responsible for some of the overdoses that occurred earlier this month in Jessamine County. Jerrod Doolin of Nicholasville was taken into federal custody late Sunday night on a charge of conspiracy to distribute heroin, according to an affidavit filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Lexington. Last week Jeffrey James Ruggiero was charged in U.S. District Court with possession of heroin with intent to distribute.
