BRENTWOOD — A Hampton woman is facing more drug charges for allegedly supplying a 19-year-old Seabrook driver with fentanyl before she struck two bicyclists who died in September, prosecutors said.
Cindy Sheppard, 48, was indicted on a new round of enhanced drug charges for allegedly supplying Darriean Hess with a dose of the pain-killing drug before she veered a 2002 Honda into a group of bicyclists on Sept. 21 along Route 1A.
The new indictments were returned by a grand jury in Rockingham County Superior Court.
She faces three counts of possession of a controlled drug while on release, and single counts of dispensing a controlled drug while on release and allowing an improper person to operate a motor vehicle.
The two women were riding their bikes in the Granite State Wheelmen Seacoast Century Ride.
Sheppard's latest charges comes as she awaits a decision by a judge about whether evidence in her first case will be heard by a jury.
He said there was no connection between his client, and a woman known as "Cinderella" who was identified in some of the conversations as a drug dealer.
Hampton police found Sheppard had 7.3 grams of heroin in her home, along with four ounces of cocaine and small quantities of crack cocaine, oxycodone, diazepam, methylone and marijuana, according to prosecutors.
