Lucas Zuehlke gets 10 years prison for supplying fatal dose of heroin

WAUSAU, WI (WTAQ) - A central Wisconsin man will spend 10 years in prison for supplying the heroin that killed another man in Marathon County.

31-year-old Lucas Zuehlke of Coloma struck a plea deal this week.

It convicted him of reckless homicide in the death of 30-year-old Thomas Knickerbocker in March of last year. Four other drug-related counts were dropped.

Zuehlke must also spend 10 years under extended supervision and pay $5,700 in restitution.

Police said Zuehlke sold $100 of high grade heroin to Knickerbocker's girlfriend, who then reportedly gave the drug to the victim. He was later found dead by his young daughter.

The girlfriend, 34-year-old Nycole Creed of Wausau, is due in court next Tuesday. A status conference will take place on her current charges of delivering heroin and felony bail jumping.
