Kelly Allen is won­der­ing how the man re­spon­si­ble for the death of her sis­ter was able to al­legedly be in­volved with drug traf­fick­ing when he is sup­posed to be on pa­role.

The Blen­heim woman con­tacted The Chat ham Daily News af­ter learn­ing Bradley Warwick ,48, who pleaded guilty to man­slaugh­ter in the death of his com­mon-law part­ner, An­gela Harkley, is fac­ing drug pos­ses­sion and traf­fick­ing charges.

A me­dia re­lease from the London Po­lice Ser­vice states Warwick was among six peo­ple charged af­ter search war­rants were car­ried out at two homes and a busi­ness in London on April 13.

Ac­cord­ing to the me­dia re­lease, more than $200,000 worth of drugs, in­clud­ing co­caine, metham­phetamine, MDMA, hashish, mar­i­juana, and mar­i­juana shat­ter, were seized along with $35,000 in cash.

“If he’s out on pa­role, who’s su­per­vis­ing him that he’s able to do this?” Allen said.

She added the whole sit­u­a­tion is “re­ally dis­turb­ing.”

Ac­cord­ing to pre­vi­ously pub­lished re­ports, Warwick was granted“re­stric­tive day passes” in late June 2013 and that was in­creased to day pa­role on Aug. 14, 2014.

Warwick re­ceived an 11-year and six-month sen­tence in con­nec­tion to Harkley’s death. The woman was stran­gled and left for dead on the floor of the cou­ple’ s home in Shrews bury on Sept. 15, 2006.

In the printed de­ci­sion by the Pa­role Board of Canada in the sum­mer of 2013, the hear­ing of­fi­cers noted Warwick is a first-time fed­eral of­fender with a his­tory of co­caine use, a lengthy crim­i­nal record com­menc­ing in 1990, and hav­ing a high-risk factor for sub­stance abuse.

Allen, who was present when Warwick was ap­ply­ing for pa­role, also re­called the panel spoke at length about his drug use.

She is up­set the tax­pay­ers cov­ered the cost of Warwick to go into a drug re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion pro­gram, which he had to complete as a con­di­tion to get pa­role, and few years later is now fac­ing drug pos­ses­sion and traf­fick­ing charges.

Allen said Warwick is sup­posed to be liv­ing in a half­way house where he has to check-in.

“That’s my con­cern, how is he able to do this?” she said.

Allen said Warwick’s lengthy list of con­di­tions in­clude he not be around drugs or al­co­hol or peo­ple associated with drugs and al­co­hol. He is also pro­hib­ited from con­tact­ing her fam­ily, which she says he’s never tried to do, or visit Chatham-Kent.
