A Winchester woman facing second-degree murder and distribution of heroin charges related to the July 22 death of Richard Kuit has been arrested by Winchester police.

Kimberly Mercer, 49, is accused of the murder of Kuit, 50, at America's Best Value Inn at 1347 Berryville Avenue in Winchester. Mercer turned herself into authorities Wednesday, according to a press release from the Winchester Police Department.

Kuit was found dead on July 22 from what an investigation later found to be a heroin overdose, according to the release.

A Winchester grand jury Tuesday indicted Mercer on charges of second-degree murder and distribution of heroin.
