LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - The La Crosse man charged with first degree reckless homicide by delivering drugs to a Trempealeau County man is headed to trial.
Jered Hellerud, 27, stood mute in court on Monday and a La Crosse County judge entered a not guilty plea on Hellerud's behalf.
The criminal complaint states Hellerud sold heroin to Robert Gordon last August. Gordon was found lying on the floor of his home with blood in his nose and vomit in his mouth. The autopsy found Gordon died from a combination of drugs.
Online court records show Hellerud's pre-trial conference is scheduled for September 19.
