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 M. 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 son were able to revive him.

But police say after he woke up, Barlow took another dose and was found dead the next morning.
