A day after charges were dismissed on a motion by the prosecutor new charges have been filed against a Milwaukee man in connection with the heroin overdose death of a Fond du lac woman.
Roy Whitelow made his initial Fond du lac Circuit Court
appearance Friday on chages of first degree reckless homicide in the
death of Heather Fugate.
Charges were dismissed the day before after the prosecution did not file the information in the case before the 30 day time limit. Whitelow is accused of supplying the heroin that led to Fugate’s death.
Judge Gary Sharpe set cash bail at $400,000. District Attorney Eric Toney had requested a million dollars
cash bail. Whitelow also faces charges of battery to a law enforcement
officer, accused of attacking a jailer.
