A Kosciusko County Jail inmate is facing new charges after the death of another inmate.

Christopher Susaraba, 28, was incarcerated on March 6 for a felony failure to appear warrant.

Police believe Susaraba had methamphetamine and heroin in his body cavity prior to his incarceration, then provided the drugs to another inmate, Dennis McCrory.

McCrory took the drugs, then became lethargic. He eventually overdosed, leading to his death, investigators say.

Jail officers initiated life-saving measures on McCrory, and administered Narcan, but without success. An autopsy indicated that McCrory died from acute mixed drug intoxication.

Susaraba is now facing charges of dealing in a controlled substance resulting in death and trafficking with an inmate. A $100,250 bond has been set.

An initial hearing has yet to be scheduled.
