Black River Falls Man Appears in Clark County Court for the Death of a Fairchild Man
Thursday, April 17th, 2014 -- 7:37 AM-A Black River Falls man appeared in Clark County Court on Monday for 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.
A $10,000 cash bond was set against Madsen and he is not allowed to have any contact with the victim?s family or Scoville. He will appear in court for a preliminary hearing on Tuesday of next week.
