LA CROSSE, Wis. (AP) - A La Crosse woman who supplied heroin to a man who died of an overdose is convicted of reckless homicide in Trempealeau County.
Jeremiah Harris, 32, died in July 2011 outside the Trempealeau Fire Department after paramedics worked to revive him.
Twenty-seven-year-old Tahsa Kempfer pleaded guilty to one count of first-degree reckless homicide in court Wednesday.
The La Crosse Tribune says Kempfer's mother, 45-year-old Michelle Johnson, was earlier sentenced to five years of probation after pleading guilty to conspiring to deliver heroin. She accompanied her daughter and Harris to Madison when Kempfer bought the heroin that killed Harris.
Kempfer is also facing charges in La Crosse County, where she's accused of selling heroin to police informants.
