9/18 Man has Bail Reduction Denied in Heroin Overdose Case

A motion to reduce bail has been denied in a Washington County Circuit Court on a 20-year-old Milwaukee man charged with first-degree reckless homicide for supplying heroin to a West Bend man who later died. Judge Andrew Gonring refused to reduce the $50,000 bail on Navvario Tate. Further court proceedings have been scheduled for September 25th. Tate is among five men with heroin homicide cases from the past year pending against them in Washington County.  According to the criminal complaint, the victim’s mother found the 26-year-old man unresponsive in bed on July 13. A witness later identified Tate as the man who sold him and the victim heroin. If convicted, Tate faces a maximum sentence of 40 years in prison. In other heroin death related cases currently active in the county court system, forty year old Kenneth Schmidt, of Milwaukee, 22 year old Matthew Heinze, and 37 Richard Ronkoski both of West Bend and 35 year old Cornelius Green, from Milwaukee have also been charged in Washington County with first-degree reckless homicide in separate incidents for allegedly supplying heroin to someone who later died.
