STEVENS POINT, Wis. (WSAU) -- An arrest has been made in connection with the death of a UW Stevens Point student.

22-year-old Jordan C. Peterson was found dead November 17th when a roommate returned to their apartment after a weekend away. An autopsy showed Peterson died of a heroin overdose.

Police have arrested 26 year old Erik E. Olsen of Hancock. Investigators believe Olsen supplied the drug to Peterson, and have recommended charges of first-degree reckless homicide.

Peterson was a senior biology pre-med student originally from the Markesan area. Many of his family members are now in central Wisconsin.
