WHITEHALL, Wis. (AP) – Prosecutors have charged a La Crosse man with delivering the heroin that killed another man last summer.
The Trempealeau County district attorney’s office has charged 27-year-old Jered Hellerud with first-degree reckless homicide.
Hellerud is charged in the death of Robert Gordon, who lived in the Village of Trempealeau. Gordon was pronounced dead on Aug. 17 of a drug overdose.
Hellerud was in jail Friday. Online court records do not list a defense attorney.
