PORTAGE, Wis. (AP) -- A Fitchburg man accused of supplying the heroin that killed a teenager in 2012 has been sentenced to seven years in prison.

Twenty-three-year-old Milton Moore pleaded no contest Thursday to first-degree reckless homicide by delivery of drugs.

After his prison term, Moore will be on extended supervision for seven years.

The Portage Daily Register reports Moore apologized to the family of the victim, 17-year-old Jacob Adler of Lodi.

Adler's mother, Shelly Johnson, says she hopes her son's story might save other lives.

Moore's co-defendant, 20-year-old Lars Atkinson of Lodi, was sentenced in October to 5 1/2 years in prison and 5 1/2 years on extended supervision.

According to the complaint, Atkinson told police he and Adler purchased the heroin in Madison, giving Moore $75 for half a gram.
