Green Bay man charged in overdose death


GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- A 28-year-old Green Bay man has been charged in the death of his girlfriend, after police say the scene was set up to look like she hung herself.

Roy Tidwell was charged Thursday with first-degree reckless homicide in the death of 26-year-old Christina Bischoff, who was found Aug. 28.

WLUK-TV reports ( police found Bischoff on the bathroom floor, where Tidwell says he found her. According to the criminal complaint, he handed police what appeared to be a suicide note.

The complaint says an electrical cord was hanging from a hook and she had marks on her neck but an autopsy showed Bischoff died of a drug overdose.

The criminal complaint says the couple often argued.

Tidwell is also facing a misdemeanor charge for obstruction.
