Two suspects are accused in the December drug overdose death of a man in Eau Claire County. Prosecutors say 19-year-old Noah Beckstead of Ettrick and 33-year-old Trenton Wik of Eau Claire are facing one count of reckless homicide. Wik is also charged with selling fentanyl. The victim’s body was found in a parked car in December. Beckstead told investigators that he and the victim were drinking and doing other drugs and then injected what he thought was heroin. The autopsy showed the man died of a fentanyl overdose. Officers say Wik sold him the drugs. His first court appearance is Thursday.
