MADISON, Wis. (AP) – Court records say the man arrested in Dane County on a possible charge of reckless homicide provided heroin to a man later found dead in La Crosse County.

The records say 48-year-old Thomas Tremain, of Barre Mills, died Sept. 6 at his home from a combination of heroin, alcohol and prescription medication. Authorities say the 28-year-old Madison man arrested Wednesday admitted selling Tremain the heroin that contributed to his death.

Sheriff’s Sgt. John Zimmerman tells the La Crosse Tribune that investigators believe it’s the first time Tremain tried heroin.

A Dane County sheriff’s deputy ran a random check of the man’s license plates, discovered he had an outstanding arrest warrant for first-degree reckless homicide and arrested him.
