Sentencing has been scheduled for April 18 in the case of a Green Bay man convicted of homicide for supplying the heroin that killed a Kewaunee County man.
Charles E. Carthage, 44, was found guilty being party to the crime of first-degree reckless homicide by delivering drugs, in connection with the January 2013 death of Andrew LeFevre, 34, of rural Casco.
Testimony began Feb. 27 before Brown County Circuit Judge Donald Zuidmulder and the trial was completed in three days over two weeks, including sessions on March 7 and March 9.
LeFevre died of a heroin overdose and investigators traced the drug back to Carthage, who is currently serving a five-year prison sentence in an unrelated Brown County heroin trafficking case.
A copy of the pre-sentence investigation in that case – in which Carthage pleaded no contest to heroin trafficking, keeping a drug house, and two counts of being a felon in possession of firearms – was entered into the file for the current Kewaunee County case on Friday. Zuidmulder scheduled a sentencing hearing for 11 a.m. April 18.
