Milwaukee man convicted in 2 heroin deaths

MILWAUKEE (AP) — A Milwaukee man accused of selling heroin that killed two people in separate overdoses has been convicted.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that 40-year-old Telly Bernardo Johnson faces up to 65 years in prison when he is sentenced in February.

Johnson was convicted Friday of two counts of first-degree reckless homicide and two counts of delivery of drugs in connection with the 2012 deaths of 56-year-old Timothy Stanczyk and 28-year-old Victoria Donnewald.

Stanczyk died in his nephew’s dorm room at University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee after he and others bought heroin from Johnson. Donnewald was found dead in her West Allis home after prosecutors say she bought heroin from Johnson outside his home.
