WHITEHALL, Wis. (AP) -- Prosecutors have charged a La Crosse man with delivering the heroin that killed another man last summer.

The Trempealeau County district attorney's office has charged 27-year-old Jered Hellerud with first-degree reckless homicide.

Hellerud is charged in the death of Robert Gordon, who lived in the Village of Trempealeau. Gordon was pronounced dead on Aug. 17 of a drug overdose.

Hellerud was in jail Friday. Online court records do not list a defense attorney.
