A 20-year-old city man was arrested on Tuesday and charged with the drug induced death of a Vernon resident, according to the Passaic County Prosecutor’s Office.
Unique H. Marshall, 20, has been charged with first-degree Strict Liability for a Drug Induced Death for supplying heroin that killed Michael Alfieri, 43.
Marshall supplied the heroin on January 29, 2016, authorities said. Alfieri overdosed and died from the drug, authorities said.
Marshall could face 10 to 20 years in state prison if convicted. His first court appearance is scheduled for Friday morning before New Jersey Superior Court Judge Marilyn Clark.
Bail has been set at $250,000 with no 10-percent option for Marshall, authorities said.
