The last of three people charged after a woman's heroin-related death in Carol Stream has been sentenced to three years in prison.

Edward Kliest, 43, of Wheaton, pleaded guilty to delivery of a controlled substance Wednesday and was sentenced by DuPage County Judge Daniel Guerin, according to court records.

Kliest sold heroin to Jennifer Andolfi shortly before the 37-year-old was found dead last November in an apartment on the 600 block of East Gundersen Drive, prosecutors said.

Also charged was Divie Moore, 29, of Carol Stream, who sold the heroin that Andolfi used to Kliest, and Tiffany Vanderbusch, 23, of Wheaton, who had been accused along with Kliest of pouring bleach on Andolfi's body to destroy evidence.

Vanderbusch pleaded guilty to heroin possession in January and was sentenced to two years of probation and six months in jail. Moore pleaded guilty to heroin delivery in May and was sentenced to 9 years.

Kliest will receive credit toward his prison term for about nine months served in the county jail.
