A Quincy man accused of drug induced homicide is to appear in Adams County Circuit Court Tuesday.

Illinois State Police say 36 year old Wardell Monroe Jr. is accused in a grand jury indictment of supplying heroin that resulted in the death of an individual on July 8th of 2015. Authorities say Monroe is currently serving a two year sentence in the Illinois Department of Corrections on an unrelated controlled substance charge. The drug induced homicide charge follows an investigation by Adams County Sheriff’s deputies… the West Central Illinois Task Force and the Adams County Coroner.
