METROPOLIS, Ill. -- Two men are accused of playing a role in a southern Illinois man's heroin death.

A Massac County grand jury has indicted 41-year-old Bradley Dye of Brookport and 28-year-old Jerez Mayweather of Chicago on one count of drug-induced homicide. Mayweather also faces three counts of unlawful delivery of a controlled substance.

The two men are charged in connection with the June death of 27-year-old Jordan Sullivan. Sullivan's body was found in his Metropolis home.

Dye already was jailed in McCracken County on unrelated charges. Mayweather is in custody in Massac County.

Online court records don't show whether they have attorneys, and they do not have listed home telephone numbers.

The homicide count is a felony punishable by up to 30 years in prison.
