QUINCY -- The trial of a Quincy man facing a drug-induced homicide charge has been pushed back one month.

During a status hearing Tuesday in Adams County Circuit Court, Judge Debra Wellborn moved the trial of Bradley S. Havermale, 23, to the March jury docket. The case had been set for the February docket.

A status hearing was set for Feb. 28.

Havermale pleaded not guilty last month to one count of drug-induced homicide. If convicted, he faces between six and 30 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections. He would not be eligible for probation.

He is accused of providing heroin on Sept. 1 to 23-year-old Anna Foote, who died the next day at her home at 533 1/2 Washington after she ingested it.

Havermale is being held in the Adams County Jail on a $100,000 bond, as well as $25,000 bond in a previous case in which prosecutors are seeking to revoke his probation. He was sentenced to probation in 2015 after pleading guilty to unlawful distribution of a look-alike substance.
