In the second case, a 35-year-old man died on March 21. Again, police say autopsy results pointed to heroin as the cause of his death. Amanda Hanstad, 27, and Nicholas Hanstad, 33, both of Kaukauna, have been charged for their role in supplying heroin to the victim.

Police say in the past year, a total of three heroin-related deaths in the town of Menasha have resulted in homicide charges.
