Prosecutors said Kellogg provided the drugs that that killed Joshua Olson, 29, of De Pere. The two had met at a rehabilitation center.

The criminal complaint stated Kellogg and Olson were preparing to inject heroin in Olson's kitchen. The complaint stated Olson injected himself first and collapsed two to three minutes later.

Investigators said Kellogg told police, "Josh couldn't handle the `H."'
