16CF162 - McKinnon, Angela N - Prelim Hearing - State called witness, Dwane Wheeler of Kincaid Police Department. State asked Wheeler on how they came to investigate the case. Wheeler testified that when police arrived on scene they could tell that the possible cause of death was a heroin overdose, and that there was a syringe, lighter and spoon found on scene indicative of heroin use. Wheeler also said how victim had come to police department roughly 30 days prior seeking help. Testified that there were search warrants obtained for cell phones belonging to victim and Destiny Doud. Wheeler said how Doud’s phone revealed that McKinnon had discussed with Doud that she was worried about jail time, and that during questioning of Doud that McKinnon told Doud that she had sold heroin to victim. Also said there were several other witnesses who had the same story of McKinnon selling victim heroin. Wheeler said he obtained several hundred messages from victim's phone regarding the purchase of heroin from McKinnon. Said the police department had obtained a search warrant of defendant's residents and had obtained evidence of heroin sale including substances to treat heroin overdoses. Also testified that the police department had obtained phone conversations between McKinnon and her boyfriend regarding the victim, stating that defendant wished she had brought victim inside the house because she could have saved him. Wheeler also spoke to McKinnon, and testified that she was very vague, and stated that once she’s out of jail she was going to keep on doing what she was doing, and stated how McKinnon had stated on her Facebook that she loves the money after the victim’s death. Also stated that there were puncture marks on victims arms indicative of heroin use. Wheeler also stated he had other witnesses who testified that McKinnon had sold the lethal dose of heroin to victim. Defendant’s attorney asked for Wheeler to state those witnesses. Testified that Christian County issued subpoena for phone conversations between McKinnon and boyfriend. Defense asked if Wheeler could say definitively if he could say that victim bought heroin from McKinnon. He said he could not, and identified several others who victim was reaching out to for heroin. Defense argued that victim could have had other sources of heroin, and that there is no direct evidence linking defendant to selling heroin victim. Defense stated they understand why defendant is prime suspect, but that there isn’t enough evidence to hold her and that the case should be dismissed. State argued that due to testimony from Wheeler, there is sufficient evidence for the court to find probable cause. Court ruled that there is probable cause to bring defendant to trial. Defense waived further arraignment and enters plea of not guilty. Defense asked for August trial date. State asked for a September date. Court set date of Sept 12th at 8:30a for Jury Trial date.
