RHINELANDER, WI (WTAQ) - A northern Wisconsin woman will spend almost three years in prison for supplying the heroin that killed a friend.

27-year-old Jennifer Heiting of St. Germain was given a four-year term Wednesday, shortened by the 415 days she spent in jail while her case was going through the system.

29-year-old David Stahl died in December of 2012 near Rhinelander, after overdosing on heroin allegedly traced back to Heiting and co-defendant Richard Lewis of St. Germain.

She admitted shipping in heroin for herself and friends. Defense lawyer Alex Nocco said Heiting felt her arrest saved her life.

She apologized to Stahl's family, saying her addiction caused many problems but she's now seeing a new life.

Heiting will spend six years under extended supervision once she leaves prison. Lewis is scheduled to be sentenced on February 19th.
