Wausau woman charged with giving fatal fentanyl dose

MARATHON COUNTY (WAOW) – A Wausau woman has been charged with giving a 24-year-old a fatal dose of fentanyl, according to Marathon County court records.

Ashley Szarkowitz, 31, is facing two felonies and more than 55 years in prison.

A medical examiner said the victim had a mixture of drugs in his system, but that the fentanyl was the “most substantial factor” in his death and was like the only cause, according to online court records.

The man was found on the 2900 block of Christian Avenue on March 13 in Wausau.
