The daughter of a state lawmaker is facing formal charges in the overdose death of a pregnant woman.
Prosecutors charged 28-year-old Cassandra Nygren this afternoon, over a week after she was arrested along with her fiance 33-year-old Shawn Gray.
The 10 counts include two for first-degree reckless homicide by dealing drugs.
Brown County Sheriff’s deputies say 31-year-old Jennifer Skeen of Green Bay died from a fentanyl overdose in June. She was 30 to 33 weeks pregnant at the time.
Deputies say even after Skeen’s death, Gray and Nygren sold heroin during an undercover sting.
Nygren’s father is Republican Representative John Nygren of Marinette. He’s spearheaded a series of bills in recent years to combat drug use.
