BETTENDORF, Iowa — An eastern Iowa man faces two heroin charges connected to the overdose death of another man.
Scott County court records say Michal Spencer, 38, of Bettendorf, is charged with distribution of heroin and conspiracy. Spencer is scheduled to be arraigned March 7. He remained in Scott County Jail today, pending $10,000 bail. His attorney didn't immediately return a call from The Associated Press.
Court documents state that Spencer prepared two syringes of heroin on April 7 that he'd bought with money given him by Tyler Ekstrand 23. Spencer injected the contents of one of the syringes to one of Ekstrand's hands. The document says Ekstrand soon overdosed and died on the floor of Spencer's apartment.
