WAUKESHA, Wis. (AP) - A 17-year-old boy accused of giving heroin to another teen who died has been charged with reckless homicide in Waukesha County.

A criminal complaint says Alex Leisten, of Oconomowoc, is also accused of selling heroin to someone else the day after 19-year-old Archie Badura died last May.

Waukesha County District Attorney Brad Schimel tells WISN-TV (https://bit.ly/1sYtTzw ) heroin is “the new king of all of our worries.” Schimel says that in 25 years, he’s never seen a problem this hard to break.

Leisten is due back in court later this month. A conviction on the charge against him carries a maximum of more than 50 years in prison.
