Kibler said after Church's hearing that additional charges could be filed at some point. But he noted that drug-induced homicide charges aren't a given in this case.
"Drug-induced homicide is very tough to prove," he said. The prosecutor noted, however, that Church admitted to police that he set up James with an as-yet unnamed dealer who could supply her with heroin. And, he said, Miller and Church had communicated by phone on several occasions that fateful Tuesday.
Kibler stressed that James' death has not been officially ruled an overdose.
"We don't have a conclusive cause of death, but overdose is thought to be a possibility," he said.
Effingham County Coroner Duane Guffey said Thursday that toxicology tests on James may not be available until late March or early April.
