No contest pleas for two men in heroin-related death of Marshfield woman

MARSHFIELD, WI (WTAQ) - Two men will be sentenced May 16th for providing the heroin that helped kill a Marshfield woman.

Authorities said 20-year-old Kayla Vanderwyst died in August of 2012, a day after she went to Wausau with the two defendants where 24-year-old Trenton Blume bought the heroin.

Blume and 23-year-old Justin Drinka both pleaded no contest in Wood County to first-degree reckless homicide in delivering drugs. Prosecutors say they'll ask Circuit Judge Greg Potter to consider a four-year sentence for Drinka, who was also found guilty of three other burglary counts.

A five-year-old sentence is recommended for Blume, who's in the state prison in Waupun on other convictions.

An autopsy showed that Vanderwyst died from overdoses of heroin and morphine.
