SHEBOYGAN, WI (WHBL) - A Sheboygan woman and an Illinois man have been bound over for trial in connection to the heroin overdose death of a Sheboygan man. 26 year old Monica Sanchez and 34 year old Leanel Holder each entered not guilty pleas to reckless homicide in Sheboygan County Court Friday.
A Sheboygan Police detective and state special investigator described during Holder’s preliminary hearing how Sanchez, working for Holder to deliver heroin in the area, gave some to her uncle - William Widucki - last December. He would be found dead hours later. Sanchez waived her right to a preliminary hearing.
These two are the latest in our area to face reckless homicide charges for fatal overdose deaths. Over the past two years, two people were sentenced and one goes to trial in April.
