A 32-year-old Woodstock man is scheduled for a bond hearing Tuesday after police say he delivered the heroin-fentanyl combination that killed another man in 2018.
Kostas Lymberopoulos remained at the McHenry County Jail Monday on a $500,000 bond. The Richmond Police Department first issued a warrant for Lymberopoulos’ arrest on Nov. 12, 2020, court records show. Officers served that warrant Saturday and arrested Lymberopoulos on multiple counts of drug-induced homicide and delivery of a controlled substance.
Lymberopoulos is accused of delivering heroin and fentanyl to 23-year-old Ralph Stalesky in October 2018, leading to the man’s death.
Those who knew Stalesky, of McHenry, described him as a “loving son, brother, uncle, grandson and friend” who had a “heart of gold and a smile that lit up the room,” according to an obituary.
The most serious charge against Lymberopoulos, drug-induced homicide, typically is punishable by six to 30 years in prison.
Lymberopoulos is expected to appear in court Tuesday with an attorney from the McHenry County Public Defender’s Office.
