A 31-year-old drug dealer from Illinois, whose activities connected him to multiple fatal overdoses, has been sentenced to 30 years in prison. Neko Donovan Forbes was sentenced Thursday in Wood County Circuit Court. Prosecutors told the court the Chicago man imported and delivered large amounts of narcotics from his home to two Nekoosa residents for sale in central Wisconsin. Forbes was accused of deliberately cutting the drugs with fentanyl to increase their potency and to increase his profits. He pleaded guilty to one count of first-degree reckless homicide in an April 2020 overdose death. Two co-conspirators also entered guilty pleas.
