Beaver Dam Man Proceeding To Trial For Overdose Death

(Beaver Dam) A Beaver Dam man is heading to trial for allegedly providing the drugs that killed a Reeseville man. Jason Thompson waived his right to a preliminary hearing Thursday on a felony count of First Degree Reckless Homicide in the death of James Hook. The 62-year-old was found unresponsive in his apartment two years ago. An autopsy revealed heroin was in his system. Investigators say the 40-year-old Thompson sold the heroin to Hook. If convicted, he faces up to 46-years in prison. Thompson remains jailed on a $50-thousand-dollar cash bond and will be arraigned in June.
