Two people face a felony charge after investigators said they came to Wisconsin Dells where they sold heroin to an informant.

Arrested Monday were James H. Kuhnke, 36, of Fort Atkinson, and Krystal L. Sawyer, 46, of Watertown.

Each was released on $5,000 signature bonds after appearing Tuesday in Columbia County Circuit Court.

Kuhnke and Sawyer are each charged with felony delivery of heroin as party to a crime. The charge carries a maximum initial penalty of 7 ½ years in prison.

Wisconsin Dells Police say Kuhnke and Sawyer sold 1 ½ grams of heroin to an informant for $450 during an investigation Monday.

Sawyer told officers that she purchased two grams of heroin in Madison for $400, then Kuhnke drove to Wisconsin Dells to sell the heroin for $450, and that Sawyer used some of the heroin, according to a criminal complaint.

Kuhnke and Sawyer are each scheduled for a pretrial conference Feb. 19 and a court hearing March 6.
