LA CROSSE, Wis. (AP) -- A La Crosse woman has been sentenced to five years in prison for providing the drugs that killed a man early last year.

Thirty-eight-year-old Takeyhia Potts sold a fatal dose of heroin mixed with fentanyl to 26-year-old Casey Eggen, who was found dead in his apartment.

WKBT-TV says that at sentencing Tuesday, Judge Scott Horne told Potts she should've known there was a chance Eggen would die when she sold him the drugs. Potts earlier entered a no contest plea to first-degree reckless homicide.

Potts will also serve five
