South Bend woman set to be sentenced in March

A South Bend woman is scheduled to be sentenced in March for conspiracy to distribute more than one kilogram of heroin.

Kayla Hampton, 28, is set to appear in court in March.

Prosecutors said between March and October 2017, Hampton and several others shared a cell phone to coordinate drug sales. She and the others would receive the cell phone along with pre-packaged heroin to sell.

Undercover officers purchased heroin from the group on 28 separate occasions.
