A Hanover Park man faces up to 30 years in prison if convicted of providing the heroin that killed a 15-year-old Bartlett boy, prosecutors said at his arraignment Tuesday.

Nolan McMahon, 19, of the 2200 block of Cinema Drive West, formally pleaded not guilty to drug-induced homicide and drug possession in the July death of John Dudek.

McMahon is accused of twice selling heroin to Dudek in the hours before he fatally overdosed inside his Bartlett home. Investigators identified McMahon through text messages, witnesses and an informant, prosecutors said.

McMahon remained in the DuPage County jail Tuesday on $1 million bail. He also faces unrelated charges of drunken driving, marijuana possession and possession of drug paraphernalia. His next court date is Oct. 15.
