EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (AP) — A Minnesota man will serve 18 months in prison for supplying drugs that led to the overdose death of a 22-year-old Eau Claire woman last summer.

Twenty-nine-year-old Craig Harp of Red Wing, Minn., was sentenced Tuesday on a felony count of delivery of a narcotic drug.

The Leader-Telegram reports Eau Claire County Judge Lisa Stark ordered Harp to spend four years on extended supervision after he’s released from prison.

Harp’s co-defendant, 22-year-old Ashley Stock of Elk Mound, will be sentenced on the same felony charge Aug. 11.

According to the criminal complaint, Niccole Henning was found dead last Aug. 9 in an apartment. An autopsy found she died from mixed-drug toxicity after taking morphine and an anti-anxiety drug.
