MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - A man who used to own two furniture galleries in the Madison area will spend five years in prison for providing the heroin that killed a 24-year-old man.
Peter Heine, who’s 51, was convicted in July of reckless homicide in the death of Anthony Heeb of McFarland. He was found unconscious in his bedroom in May of last year.
Heine said he never meant to hurt anyone – he, “slipped off the track” – and he’s ready to become a good person again.
But Dane County Circuit Judge Julie Genovese said Heine will need more rehabilitation because he’s still addicted to heroin. She said a prison term would let him get some treatment.
