Trial Underway In FDL County Heroin Death

A jury trial is underway in Fond du Lac County Court this week for a 35-year-old Milwaukee man who allegedly supplied a 27-year-old Fond du Lac woman with the heroin that led to her death. Roy Whitelow faces a 1st Degree Reckless Homicide charge for the February 12th, 2013 death of Heather Fugate. Last November a Fond du Lac County jury found Whitelow guilty of battering a County Sheriff’s jailer and he was sentenced to four years in prison and a year of extended supervision. Officers were trying to take a DNA sample from him while he was being booked into the jail in February of 2013 when that battery occurred. The current trial is scheduled through the end of the week.
