Four people charged in overdose death of Boscobel teen

BOSCOBEL, WI (WTAQ) - Four people from Boscobel face federal charges for the death of a teenager who overdosed on morphine.  

The investigation continues, and Grant County sheriff's deputies say more charges are expected in the death of 18-year-old Jordan Faulkner of Boscobel.  

63-year-old Mary Grant, 46-year-old Brent "Tony" Venglish, and 24-year-old Thomas Kussmaul are being held by U.S. Marshals while awaiting their first court appearance on federal counts of distributing a controlled substance. A fourth suspect, 33-year-old Craig Bellis, is in the Grant County Jail on unrelated charges.  

Faulkner died a year ago this past Monday. The arrests came after a year-long investigation by the state Justice Department, a regional drug task force, and Boscobel Police.
