UPDATE: La Crosse police arrest 2 in heroin overdose death

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - After a lengthy investigation, La Crosse police arrested two on first degree reckless homicide charges Wednesday.

Zachary D. Miller, 25, is under arrest for first degree reckless homicide and Jennifer M. Tenner, 33, for party to the crime - first degree reckless homicide, police said.

La Crosse police began investigating Miller in May, 2017, for selling heroin and were able to make an undercover purchase of the drug from him. That purchase, along with other information received during the investigation, gave police probable cause to arrest Miller, but he could not be located.

On June 28, 2017, Kyle A. Bott, 28, died of a heroin overdose. Police tracked the source of the drug to Miller. The investigation revealed that Tenner drove Miller to the drug transaction location.

Police investigators arrested Miller and Tenner on September 26. Tenner was released on a signature bond.

Both Miller and Tenner are expected to have court appearances today, police said.
