BELLEVILLE, Illinois — Authorities are asking for the public's help in finding a southwestern Illinois man accused of drunkenly causing the death of a passenger in his car.

St. Clair County prosecutors on Friday charged 36-year-old William Wellmon of Granite City with one count each of reckless homicide and aggravated driving under the influence of alcohol causing death. Wellmon hasn't been arrested on the charges.

Authorities allege Wellmon was driving a pickup truck April 18 near Marissa when it crashed, killing 30-year-old Daniel Pocrnich. Wellmon and another passenger who, along with Pocrnich, was from Marissa survived.

Wellmon's bond is set at $250,000.

Online court records don't show whether Wellmon has an attorney.
