PORT WASHINGTON, Wis. (AP) -- Jurors have convicted a 24-year-old Milwaukee man in the overdose death of a Concordia University student in Mequon.
The jury on Wednesday found Shuntaye Crenshaw guilty of first-degree reckless homicide/delivery of drugs in the death of 18-year-old Caleb Ford of Waukesha.
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports Crenshaw faces up to 25 years in prison when he is sentenced in January.
Ford died of a heroin and Xanax overdose in his freshman dorm room on Oct. 1, 2015.
Ozaukee County District Attorney Adam Gerol said Crenshaw gave Ford the heroin just hours before Ford's roommate found him dead.
Defense attorney Lauria Lynch-German says Crenshaw is a "rip-off artist" and only delivered "items," not heroin, to Ford.
Chance of a shower or T-storm Sunday, otherwise the weekend forecast is looking good.
