WAUKESHA, WI (WTAQ) - A 20-year-old Waukesha County woman will spend just over seven years in prison for providing the heroin that killed a long-time friend from Hartland.

Kandice Essmann of Oconomowoc must also spend 7 years under extended supervision once she’s no longer behind bars.

Authorities said Essmann bought heroin for her and Dustin Williams in July of last year, and they took the drug at his house. After she left, authorities said she dumped the needles along a roadside.

Essmann pleaded no contest in October to reckless homicide.

Waukesha County Circuit Judge William Domina sentenced her to 8 years in prison – but she was given credit for 220 days she spent in jail during her court case.
