A St. Louis woman is charged after three female inmates in the Madison County Jail overdosed in a holding cell. The three began showing signs of narcotic intoxication while being held on Wednesday afternoon and were transported to a regional hospital, where they were treated and returned to the custody of the Madison County Jail.
Madison County Sheriff Captain Mike Dixon tells The Big Z the drugs never made it past the holding cell and into the general population.
