CAROL STREAM – Two people charged with the drug induced homicide of a Carol Stream man are being held on bond after allegedly supplying him with the heroin that led to his Sept. 27 death, according to a news release from the DuPage County State's Attorney's Office.

Ricardo Bryant, 31, Chicago and Adrianna Diana, 21, Carol Stream were both charged in the death of 21-year-old Christopher Houdek, and are being held on a $2 million and a $100,000 bond, respectively, the release said.

Diana allegedly arranged to meet Houdek outside her home to sell him heroin, according to the release. Houdek then reportedly used the drug in Diana's home before losing consciousness. Police responded to a 911 call and Houdek was transported to an area hospital where he died from what was later determined to be a heroin overdose. The drugs allegedly came from Bryant through a third party.

Diana turned herself in to authorities the morning of Feb. 11. Bryant was taken into custody the previous afternoon. Both were also charged with one count of criminal drug conspiracy, the release said.

The next court date for both is an arraignment hearing March 10. Their cases have been assigned to Judge Kathryn Creswell, according to the release.
