BELLEVILLE, Ill. (AP) - A newly freed Illinois prison inmate is back behind bars, now accused of fatally beating a teenage honor student in southwestern Illinois nearly a quarter century ago.

The Belleville News-Democrat reports that St. Clair County prosecutors in southwestern Illinois have charged 51 year old Carlos Garrett with first-degree murder in the death of Nicole Willis. Her partly clothed body was found near her Centreville home.

It's not immediately clear what prompted the murder counts against Garrett.

Until Monday, Garrett had been serving a six year prison term on a Montgomery County drug-distribution conviction.

Garrett remained jailed yesterday in Belleville on $1 million bond.

Online court records do not show whether he has an attorney.
