   PACIFIC, Mo. (AP) - A St. Louis area man faces a murder charge after he allegedly provided heroin to a woman who later died of an overdose.

   Franklin County authorities say 27-year-old Christopher Albrecht was charged Wednesday with second-degree murder and heroin distribution. He is being held on $100,000 bail.

   The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports Albrecht allegedly supplied heroin to 32-year-old Danielle Jeanine Barlow and her boyfriend in April. The boyfriend overdosed first but Barlow and her 11-year-old son were able to revive him.

   Police say after he woke up, Barlow took another dose and was found dead the next morning.

Railroad officials say the man struck and killed by an Amtrak train in Pacific Wednesday night had been cutting across the tracks when the accident happened. Police say 20 year -old Zachary Brady was walking home from his job at a fast-food restaurant when Amtrak's Missouri River Runner train struck and killed him.

Police say this is the fourth serious accident along the Union Pacific line near the Fourth Street crossing in the last eight years -- two others were also fatal.

An Amtrak official told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that most accidents involving pedestrians could be avoided if people wouldn't trespass on railroad tracks. Trespasser fatalities have become the leading cause of railroad deaths.
