Milwaukee Man Sentenced For Selling Heroin In FDL County Drug Death

The 68-year-old Milwaukee man suspected of selling heroin that led to three overdose deaths in Fond du Lac County has been sentenced to prison. Judge Robert Wirtz sentenced Alonzo Cornelius to 12 years in prison and 3 years of extended supervision. He was sentenced on a heroin trafficking charge. District Attorney Eric Toney says the charge stemmed from the death of Devon Perry, a Town of Springvale man. But he says Cornelius is linked to two other deaths and this will give all three families some justice. He says those other cases would have been harder to prove in court and investigators were able to close out some of their cases. He agrees with the judge’s sentence. He says ADA Curtis Borsheim did a nice job for the prosecution. Perry died of mixed drug intoxication that included heroin on October 12th of 2012. Two other men had ties to Perry’s death. Both of them are now serving time in prison as well.
