St. Germain Woman Could Face Charges in Overdosing DeathSubmitted: 01/03/2013

RHINELANDER - 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.

Wisconsin Supreme Court rules on whether past sexual relationships can be considered in rape casesSubmitted: 07/22/2014

MADISON - The Wisconsin Supreme Court ruled today on whether a prior sexual relationship can be considered in rape cases.

A Milwaukee man found guilty of rape challenged his conviction.

That's because the trial court refused to allow evidence that the man previously had consenual sex with the woman.

The Supreme Court decided it was proper to exclude that information at his trial under Wisconsin's rape shield law.

The court on Tuesday reversed an appeals court ruling that found in favor of the Milwaukee man.

The Supreme Court sent the case back to the appeals court to rule on other issues raised in the case.

The man is serving a 10 year sentence for second degree sexual assault.

Pankow says a blood test at the hospital determined the boy's blood-alcohol level was ``well over'' the legal limit to drive, which is 0.08 percent in Wisconsin.

Pankow says the boy admitted drinking vodka, and told police he drinks alcohol ``about every three days or so.''

Investigators found empty alcohol containers in the boy's room. The boy was taken to a juvenile shelter after being released from the hospital.

Man who spends summers in Northwoods invents first-of-its-kind CPR deviceSubmitted: 07/21/2014

EAGLE RIVER - One in four Americans will need to perform CPR on someone. But 70% of those people feel helpless because they don't know what to do, according to the American Heart Association. Joe Hanson, a man who spends his summers in Eagle River, spent more than 45 years in the cardiovascular medical device industry. Over time he saw devices improve. But one thing that didn't was the survival rate of people who suffer from sudden cardiac arrest.

"2005, 2010 area, the American Heart Association and others started to look at the reason for that low survivability. And what they found was that people really hesitated to do CPR," Hanson explained.
