Teen charged with homicide for heroin overdose death

Thursday August 14, 2014

WAUKESHA, Wis. (AP) -- A 17-year-old boy accused of giving heroin to another teen who died has been charged with reckless homicide in Waukesha County.

A criminal complaint says Alex Leisten, of Oconomowoc, is also accused of selling heroin to someone else the day after 19-year-old Archie Badura died last May.

Leisten is due back in court later this month. A conviction on the charge against him carries a maximum of more than 50 years in prison.
