The La Crosse woman guilty of giving a deadly dose of heroin to a Trempealeau County man learns her fate Tuesday. 

Tasha Kempfer, 27, was sentenced to five years of prison and five years of extended supervision for her role in the death of 32 year old Jeremiah Harris in 2011. 

Harris's autopsy revealed he died of a heroin overdose. Kempfer and her mother gave him the heroin. 

Kempfer also has two unrelated heroin charges in La Crosse County.
