Albion man behind bars for overdose death of his wife.
An Albion man is being held in the Orleans County Jail after a lengthy criminal investigation revealed he allegedly supplied a fatal opiate to his wife then neglected to seek medical attention for her.
After a nine month long investigation into the death of 33 year old Megan McMullen, Albion police arrested her husband 32 year old Kevin McMullen charging him with criminally negligent homicide.
According to investigators Kevin supplied his wife a fatal dose of fentanyl on December 18th of last year and after performing CPR without resuscitation he injected himself with the drugs instead of calling for medical attention that may have saved her life.
He was ordered to be held in lieu of $50,000 bail in the Orleans County Jail.
The investigation has led police to identify several opiate dealers supplying drugs in Orleans County from the Rochester area.
