EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. -- Two southwestern Illinois residents face up to life in prison now that they’ve admitted distributing the heroin blamed in a 23-year-old man’s death.

Tyrone Adams, 33, and Cara Moss, 26, of Alton pleaded guilty Monday in U.S. District Court in East St. Louis.

Authorities say Adams and Moss sold $100 worth of heroin last Aug. 20 to Leonard Hormann III of Alton. Hormann died that day.

Adams and Moss also pleaded guilty to charges that accused them of running a heroin-trafficking house for a few months last year and of distributing the drug within 1,000 feet of a school.

They remain jailed without bond, awaiting a sentencing hearing scheduled for April 29.
