A 24-year-old woman has been arrested in the drug death of a man two years ago in west central Wisconsin.

Harley Est of Merrillan is one of three people charged with reckless homicide, for allegedly helping provide the heroin that killed 43-year-old Vernell Pugh of Black River Falls. Police in Galesville stopped a vehicle Sunday afternoon and arrested Est, along with a 32-year-old man in what officials said was an unrelated matter. The other two defendants in Pugh's are both due in Jackson County Circuit Court next Monday -- 33-year-old Charles Singer of Whitehall and 29-year-old Mikel Koller, who's at the state prison in New Lisbon.
