STEVENS POINT, WI (WTAQ) - A central Wisconsin man appeared in court Monday, for allegedly supplying the heroin that killed a UW-Stevens Point student.  

26-year-old Erik Olsen of Hancock is charged with reckless homicide in the November overdose death of 22-year-old Jordan Peterson.  

Portage County prosecutors said Peterson sent a text message to Olsen to ask for drugs. Roommates told authorities that Peterson occasionally smoked marijuana -- but Olsen couldn't find any at the time, so he brought heroin to him instead.  

It was not clear whether it was Peterson's first experience with the drug.  

Olsen remains in jail under a $100,000 bond. A preliminary hearing was ordered, but a date was not immediately set.
