COLLINSVILLE, IL (KMOV) – A Metro-East man was charged Monday following the investigation of a drug-related death of a man in early March.

Dale A. Watts, 50, of Washington Park, was charged with one count of drug-induced homicide and one count of concealment of a homicidal death by the Grand Jury of St. Clair County.

Authorities allege that Roth Brewer III died as a result of a heroin injection provided by Watts on March 1, 2013.  Investigators say Watts allegedly hid the body in his basement and provided false information to police regarding Brewer’s whereabouts.

Watts is being held at the East St. Louis Police Department.

Bond for Watts was set at $150,000.
