PACIFIC, Mo. (AP) - A St. Louis area man faces a murder charge after he allegedly provided heroin to a woman who later died of an overdose.
Franklin County authorities say 27-year-old Christopher Albrecht was charged Wednesday with second-degree murder and heroin distribution. He is being held on $100,000 bail.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports Albrecht allegedly supplied heroin to 32-year-old Danielle Jeanine Barlow and her boyfriend in April. The boyfriend overdosed first but Barlow and her 11-year-old son were able to revive him.
Police say after he woke up, Barlow took another dose and was found dead the next morning.
