- A Northwoods woman already faces three drug-related felony charges. But it could get worse.
Twenty six-year-old Jennifer Heiting was in Oneida County court today. She's already accused of posessing and selling heroin.
The state could add more charges in the death of a Crescent man. Police think his death might have been caused by a heroin overdose.
Heiting admitted she and her boyfriend shipped heroin to David Stahl several times.
"Ms. Heiting had made an arrangement with Mr. Stahl to receive a package containing approximately $500 worth of heroin at Mr. Stahl's residence. Mr. Stahl was to sign for that package. The arrangement was because that package would arrive at Mr. Stahl's residence several hours earlier than it would have at Ms. Heiting's. And in exchange for doing so, Mr. Stahl was to receive two bindles of heroin," says an Oneida County investigator.
Two days later Stahl was found dead in his house. Heiting admitted to police she'd given him the heroin she'd promised.
Judge Michael Bloom ruled there was enough evidence against Heiting for the manufacturing and delivering charges. She'll enter a plea February 18th.
Prosecutors say they're still waiting on toxicology results to confirm the cause of Stahl's death before considering additional charges.
