Eric Delia of Nutley was freed on $25,000 bail after he turned himself in this week.

Authorities say the 23-year-old is provided the heroin to the 27-year-old Pequannock man, who was found dead by his mother in his apartment in June 2010. The man's name was not disclosed.

Investigators soon obtained the man's cell phone records, which they say led them to Delia.

A phone number for Delia could not be located Wednesday.
