(Beaver Dam) It took a Dodge County jury just under four hours Thursday to convict a Beaver Dam man who supplied the drugs that led to an overdose death. After a weeklong jury trial, Brian K. Larson II was convicted of First Degree Reckless Homicide by Delivery of Drugs and Bail Jumping; he was acquitted on two other felonies including Delivery of Heroin. Dakoda Kline of Juneau died of a drug overdose in April of 2017. Dodge County Sheriff’s deputies and the medical examiner were called to the Oakwood Cemetery after receiving reports of a suspicious vehicle parked overnight with its engine running. The 25-year-old was found dead slumped over the wheel after taking heroin supplied by Larson. The heroin sales were related to offenses that occurred in March and May of 2017. A pre-sentencing investigation was ordered and Larson will be sentenced on June 5.
