RHINELANDER, Wis. (WSAU) - The woman accused of supplying the heroin that killed a Rhinelander man has been found guilty. 27-year-old Jennifer Heiting of St. Germain entered into a plea agreement in Oneida County court Wednesday.
Heiting was charged with five felonies and two misdemeanors after David Stahl of Rhinelander died of a heroin overdose last December 10th.
Judge Michael Bloom accepted Heiting’s pleas of no contest and found her guilty of first degree reckless homicide by delivering drugs, and possession of narcotic drugs. The other charges for manufacture or delivery of heroin and bail jumping were dismissed, but will be read in at her sentencing January 29th.
Investigators say Heiting and 27-year-old Richard Lewis of St. Germain were responsible for having the drugs shipped from Illinois. Lewis also faces charges and will be in court December 17th.
