MEDINA, Wis. -Two men were charged with homicide in connection with a teen's death five months ago from heroin, officials said.

The Dane County Sheriff's Department said deputies responded to a report of a person without a pulse and not breathing at 4 p.m. Aug. 22 on the 5000 block of Lochinvars Trail in the town of Medina.

After an extensive investigation by the Dane County medical examiner, the 15-year-old girl's death was determined to be “acute heroin intoxication.”

The same day of the teen’s death, deputies searched the Lochinvars Trail home and arrested Seth Schumacher, 22, of Marshall, on a probation violation. Schumacher was with the girl when she died, according to a release.

In addition to the charge of first-degree reckless homicide, Schumacher is also being charged with sexual assault of a person under the age of 16 and possession of heroin.

Investigators also searched a home on the 1000 block of East Washington Avenue, where 32-year-old Antonio McCarroll lived. He was taken into custody on a probation violation, and is now facing charges including first-degree reckless homicide, possession of narcotics, possession of THC, maintaining a drug dwelling and possession with intent to deliver.
