Trial ordered for funeral director in drug case

MARKESAN, Wis. (AP) — A mortician accused of dealing drugs at her family’s Markesan funeral home will stand trial.

Twenty-five-year-old Melissa Wachholz has pleaded not guilty to drug charges in Green Lake County Court, including maintaining a drug trafficking place. She’s waived her right to a preliminary hearing.

According to a criminal complaint, Wachholz told investigators she traveled to Milwaukee every day to buy five to eight grams of heroin for her personal use and to sell.

The Reporter says Waccholz has worked at the funeral home with her sister since 2004.
