Cash Bond Set In Overdose Death

(Watertown) Cash bond was set at $1,000 dollars for a Watertown woman accused of supplying the drugs that led to an overdose death. Debra Patroelj made her initial appearance in court Monday on one felony count of First Degree Reckless Homicide. Patroelj is implicated in the January 2016 overdose of 16-year-old John Teuteberg. The 49-year-old allegedly sold the victim a half dozen methadone pills. The charge carries a maximum 40-year prison sentence, if convicted. A judge will decide next week if there is enough evidence to order a trial.
