Two Charged With the Death of a Fairchild Man

Friday, April 11th, 2014 -- 8:15 AM

-A Black River Falls man and Fairchild woman have been charged with the death of a Fairchild man.

In January of 2013, 20-year-old William Wilkinson-Hurst was found dead in his home and an exam determined that he died of an overdose from the drug fentanyl, a prescribed painkiller said to be more powerful than morphine.

29-year-old Richard Madsen, Black River Falls, and 26-year-old Jessica Scoville, Fairchild, allegedly supplied the drug to Hurst.

Both Madsen and Scoville have been charged with reckless homicide, party to a crime. They both have had arrest warrants filed against them as of Tuesday.
