Jury Trial Underway For Reckless Homicide Suspect

(Beaver Dam) A two-day jury trial began Monday for a Beaver Dam man accused of providing the drugs that killed a Reeseville man. Jason Thompson is facing First Degree Reckless Homicide charges in the death of James Hook. Following jury selections, the state made their opening arguments and called multiple witnesses to the stand to testify about the incident. The 62-year-old Hook 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.
