A West Palm Beach man has been indicted in connection with an overdose death, according to the Palm Beach County State Attorney's Office.

Calvin Warren, Jr. faces a charge of first-degree in the fatal fentanyl overdose of Thomas Matuseki, the State Attorney Dave Aronberg announced.

“As part of our focus on the opioid epidemic, which claimed 642 lives in Palm Beach County last year, we will aggressively charge drug dealers who spread deadly fentanyl-laced heroin into our community.  We will use all tools provided us by the Florida Legislature to hold drug dealers accountable for causing the deaths of others," Aronberg said in a statement.

Warren, Jr. is being held without bond at the Palm Beach County Jail.
