Heroin Suspect Pleads Not GuiltySubmitted: 02/18/2013

RHINELANDER - A woman facing felony heroin charges and possible manslaughter charges too claims she's innocent.

26-year-old Jennifer Heiting was in Oneida Court today to enter her plea to the drug charges.

She faces two felony counts of delivering heroin, two counts of bail jumping and one felony count for possession of drugs.

But it could get even worse for Heiting.

Police think she played a role in the death of a Crescent man.


David Stahl died of an apparent heroin overdose late last year.

If toxicology tests come back positive, Heiting could face additional charges for his death.

She admitted to shipping heroin to David Stahl several times.

Heiting will be back in court April 9th at 10 a.m.

She was in the exam room for part of the exam. Juergens was walking around touching the medical equipment. She told him to stop.

WPS planning to change ratesSubmitted: 07/29/2014

THE NORTHWOODS - If Wisconsin Public Service gets what it wants, you'll see an increase on one part of your energy bill. But WPS thinks it will be offset by rate reductions for many customers.

WPS puts a $10 fixed monthly charge on residential electric bills. That's true no matter how much power the customer uses. The cost helps cover equipment like meters and wires all customers need.

Right now, some of the cost for equipment gets passed on in per-unit energy charges. WPS wants to raise the fixed cost to $25 per month to better reflect delivery costs.
