A doctor from Alabama has been charged with illegally prescribing drugs that contributed to the death of 3 Doors Down guitarist Matt Roberts.

Newly-released records show that Dr. Richard Snellgrove prescribed Fentanyl and Norco to Roberts in the days before the musician was found dead from an overdose in August.

Snellgrove was named in a six-count federal indictment in October.

Robert's father has said the guitarist had been seeing Snellgrove as a patient for over a decade.

Agents from the drug authorities seized records from Snellgrove's offices in September and found evidence that the 59-year-old doctor gave illegal prescriptions to Roberts multiple times.

Matt Roberts was a founding member of the Mississippi-based band 3 Doors Down. He quit in 2012 citing health issues. He was 38 at the time of his death.

Court documents say Roberts had been suffering from substance abuse problems.
