Eric L. Williams, Jr., 24, has been arrested on second-degree murder and other charges related to a drug overdose death that occurred on May 6.
Through investigation it was determined the victim purchased narcotics from Williams on May 6.
An autopsy conducted by the Hamilton County Medical Examiner’s Office later confirmed the victim died from overdosing on methamphetamine.
