Here is the latest Wisconsin news from The Associated Press:

ASHWAUBENON, Wis. (AP) -- Authorities in the Green Bay area say a father who laid his infant daughter face down on a couch should be charged with reckless homicide. Thirty-year-old Scott Conklin of Ashwaubenon hasn't been formally charged. Prosecutors say authorities aren't alleging that Conklin intentionally killed his daughter, but that a crime was committed.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The Wisconsin Supreme Court is set to rule in a case accusing a prescription drug company of inflating prices. The lawsuit dates back to 2004 when then-Attorney General Peg Lautenschlager sued 36 drug companies alleging they inflated wholesale prices. One of those companies, Pharmacia, Inc., has appealed a jury verdict that it violated state law.

WAUSAU, Wis. (AP) -- Central Wisconsin's strawberry crop is expected to be depleted in about a week. Berry farms began their picking seasons about a week early this year after unusual spring weather threw the berry season off kilter. Jeannine Matsuhak with Mike's Berries and Engelberry Farm in Merrill says the picking season will be over, or close to it, by the Fourth of July holiday weekend.

DETROIT (AP) -- A Detroit-area pizza chain is launching a new line of Great Lakes-themed pizzas to help support environmental efforts in the region. Buddy's Pizza announced yesterday that $1 from each pie sold from its Made in Michigan Great Lakes Pizza Collection will be donated to the Alliance for the Great Lakes. Each of the five Great Lakes gets its own pizza.
