LA CROSSE, Wis. -- A La Crosse woman is sentenced for her role in the overdose death of a man whose body was found in a north side park.
38-year-old Christina Lorenz will spend four years in prison for the death of Anthony DuCharme.
Lorenz pleaded guilty in April to a reduced charge of second-degree reckless homicide. A hiding a corpse charged was dismissed, but considered at sentencing.
Prosecutors say Lorenz and Cain Moss purchased a Fentanyl patch, a narcotic painkiller, and gave it to Ducharme August 2, 2011 at Moss' father's home.
After finding Ducharme dead a while later, Cain and Robert Moss and Patrick Valiquette allegedly dumped Ducharme's body at Red Cloud Park.
Lorenz and Cain Moss were charged with first-degree reckless homicide charges. Cain Moss is scheduled to appear in court July 30. He also faces a charge of hiding a corpse.
Robert Moss was sentenced in March to a year in prison after pleading no contest to hiding a corpse.
Patrick Valiquette was sentenced in May to five years probation after pleading to being party to the crime of hiding a corpse.15711004
