A Waukesha man and Milwaukee man facing homicide charges under the state’s “Len Bias Law” for the drug overdose death of a Wauwatosa teen have pleaded not guilty to the charges.
Daniel Lee Birtic, 23, and Edwin Esteves, 33, were arraigned on one count of first-degree reckless homicide by delivery of drugs Thursday in Milwaukee County Circuit Court.
The men are facing the charges after Alexandra Michelle Hopping, 19, was found dead inside a home in the 1800 block of North 70th Street.
The men were charged in October after a six-month investigation by police.
No trial date has been set yet in the case, however, they will appear again in court Dec. 15 for further proceedings. Both men remain in Milwaukee County Jail on high cash bail.
