The indictment alleges Barba was delivering about 830 grams of fentanyl when she was arrested the morning of October 11, 2018.

Barba was arrested in October 2018 in Norfolk, Va., for "unlawfully, knowingly, and intentionally" possessing 100 grams of heroin with the intent to sell it. They consisted of 10 counts of distribution or possession of cocaine, heroin, and fentanyl with the intent to distribute and one count of conspiracy to distribute the same narcotics.

Barba's detention hearing is scheduled for Thursday.

An unnamed cohort used an apartment on Granby Street in September 2017 to stash cocaine, heroin and money, according to the indictment, which also outlines several small drug sales in Chesapeake, Portsmouth, Norfolk and Virginia Beach. On another occasion, Stennett allegedly gave a fellow conspirator around 15 pounds of cocaine. Her state drug-dealing charges were dropped.

When the New Jersey native appeared on Idol in 2007, she won viewers' hearts with her performance of Aerosmith's "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing" and Celine Dion's "Because You Loved Me".

Now, the federal charges identified in the indictment carry a maximum sentence of life in prison. She, along with many other former Idol stars, also participated in a "We Are the World" parody on Jimmy Kimmel Live! in May of past year.

Barba, who also has a felony marijuana case pending in Kansas, was one of several members of a drug conspiracy that was active in Hampton Roads from at least late 2017 through the fall of 2018, the newspaper reported.

Records cited by Fox also indicate Barba was arrested in New York City in 2011 for shoplifting.
