Woman Faces Drug Charges After Fatal Heroin Overdose
Amy M. Kaebisch faces drug charges after Justin Martinez was found unconscious with a needle in his arm in the 800 block of Scott Avenue, according to criminal complaint
A 34-year-old Waukesha woman is facing charges after a man she was living with overdosed and died after they took heroin Saturday night.
Amy M. Kaebisch was charged in Waukesha County Circuit Court on Wednesday with one count of possession of narcotic drugs, two counts of bail jumping, one count of possession of an illegally obtained prescription drug and one count of possession of drug paraphernalia. If convicted, she faces up to 5 ½ years in prison and $31,000 in fines.
According to the criminal complaint:
Early Sunday morning, Waukesha police were called to an apartment in the 800 block of Scott Avenue after Kaebisch found Justin Martinez "Lil Demon" unconscious after overdosing on heroin. She told officers they had injected the drug twice on Saturday and after the second dose, she went to bed thinking Martinez came with her. However, Kaebisch woke up later to find him unconscious with a needle sticking out of his arm.
Kaebisch took the needle out of his arm before officers arrived and stashed it in a drawer where officers found baggies of white powder believed to be drugs. Officers searched the apartment and also found a heroin cooker and numerous pills.
Martinez had no pulse and wasn’t breathing and was later pronounced dead. Kaebisch changed her story drastically for police, first saying she injected Martinez with heroin, then saying he injected himself with the fatal dose.
She’s currently free on $500 bond while awaiting trial.
