A scheduled hearing in the case of Altamont resident Jay C. Miller was continued Tuesday.

The 22-year-old Miller is charged with possession of a controlled substance.  Authorities are investigating a link with the death of an Effingham woman, and are awaiting tests that could indicate her death was due to heroin.

The Tuesday hearing was delayed as attorneys on both sides of the case await further lab reports. The hearing was postponed to April 10.  

Miller is still slated to go on trial April 14.
