A Twin Lakes woman faces a charge of reckless homicide in connection with the heroin overdose death of a Salem man this summer.

Elizabeth M. Cooper, 30, faces a charge of  first degree reckless homicide/delivery of drugs. She also has been charged with felony possession of narcotic drugs (heroin) and a misdemeanor of possession of drug paraphernalia.

Cooper’s charges stem from an investigation into the July 18 death of Salem resident Christopher Stachura. From a Kenosha County Sheriff’s Department media release:

Stachura was found on that day deceased in his garage in the 11500 block of 277th Avenue. Evidence at the scene suggested heroin overdose. During the investigation it was determined based on physical evidence on the scene and mobile phone records that Stachura received the heroin from 30 year old Village of Twin Lakes resident Elizabeth M. Cooper. Cooper was interviewed and admitted to providing Stachura with heroin.  When Cooper was arrested she was in possession of heroin and drug paraphernalia.”
