RHINELANDER, Wis. (WSAU) - Oneida County officials are filing charges against a Saint Germain woman in the possible heroin overdose of a Town of Crescent man.

Deputies arrested 26 year old Jennifer Heiting Monday night after an investigation into the death of 30 year old David Stahl. Right now, Heiting is being charged with Delivery of Heroin, Conspiracy to Deliver Heroin, and Possession With Intent To Deliver Heroin.

Stahl died of a suspected heroin overdose, but a toxicology report is being performed to confirm that finding from the coroner's office. The report could take several weeks, and the outcome could decide if Heiting is further charged with reckless homicide.

This arrest is part of an ongoing controlled substance investigation by the Northcentral Drug Enforcement Group (NORDEG) Task Force. Participating agencies in this investigation included the Oneida County Sheriff's Office, the Rhinelander Police Department, the Vilas County Sheriff's Office, the Oneida County Medical Examiners Office and the Oneida County District Attorney's Office.
