Fitchburg man gets prison time for supplying fatal heroin dose

PORTAGE, WI (WTAQ) - A Fitchburg man will spend seven years in prison for supplying the heroin that killed a 17-year-old boy in 2012.

Milton Moore pleaded no contest to a first-degree reckless homicide charge in the death of Jacob Adler of Lodi.

A Columbia County judge also told the 23-year-old Moore to spend seven years under extended supervision once he leaves prison. A second defendant, 20-year-old Lars Atkinson of Lodi, was sentenced last fall to five-and-a-half years behind bars, with the same amount of time for extended supervision.

Prosecutors said Adler and Atkinson bought the heroin in Madison and gave Moore $75 for a half-gram.
