Men Charged in Columbia County Heroin Death Submitted: 10/03/2012
PORTAGE - Two men face reckless homicide charges in Columbia County after a 17-year-old died of a heroin overdose.

A criminal complaint says the teen, Jacob Adler, and 18-year-old Lars Atkinson, of Lodi went to Madison July 12 to buy drugs.

They gave 22 year old Milton Moore, of Fitchburg, $75 for a-half gram of heroin.

After injecting themselves with heroin, Atkinson and Adler returned to Lodi.

The complaint says Atkinson told police he put Adler, who was asleep, on a couch and tried to wake him up.

He then dragged him to an upstairs bedroom.

When he awoke the next morning, Atkinson again tried to wake Adler, then dragged him to the patio.

Posecutors say Atkinson brushed off an offer for help from two city workers.

Those workers called emergency responders.
