Prosecutors say charges will be filed against an Owen man who they say sold drugs to a Clark County college student, who then fatally overdosed.
23-year-old Jesse Jensen, a UW-Stout student, was found dead in her off-campus house in Menomonie on January 22. Police questioned 28-year-old David Thorne of Owen, who admitted to selling Jensen oxycodone. Thorne told police that he’d warned her to cut the pill in half, and not to take all of it at once.
Toxicology reports indicate Jensen took the pill with alcohol and also had morphine in her system. She had a BAC of .16 when she died.
Thorne is due in Dunn County court on Friday in another case, where he’s charged with possessing amphetamines with intent to deliver. Prosecutors have not said what specific additional charges he will face in connection with Jensen’s death.
