JACKSON, Mich. (AP) - Charges have been filed in the overdose death of Ted Nugent’s property manager in southern Michigan.

Melissa Mullins faces a court hearing Tuesday to determine if there’s enough evidence to send the case to trial in Jackson County. The Jackson Citizen Patriot (https://bit.ly/2bcTo02 ) says Mullins is charged with supplying a fatal heroin dose to Jim Lawson, who died on the rocker’s property on April 29.

Defense attorney Andrew Kirkpatrick declined to comment.

Penny Lawson tells the newspaper that her husband managed Nugent’s 340-acre ranch in Pulaski Township and lived in a house rented from Nugent.

On April 30, Nugent’s Facebook page said “hearts are shattered” because of Lawson’s death. He said: “Rock in peace.”

Lawson appeared in “Surviving Nugent,” a 2003 show on VH1.
