Mother And Daughter Still Jailed Separately In Tremplo Homicide Case
They're closer together now, but still not in the same jail.
A Lake Mills woman and her adult daughter remain jailed in separate counties, on charges of causing a Trempealeau man's drug death last year. Michelle Johnson was moved from Jefferson County, near Madison, to the Chippewa County jail, while daughter Tasha Kempfer has been transferred from La Crosse to Trempealeau County. Kempfer's original bond of 100-thousand dollars was cut in half to 50-thousand during a court hearing on Wednesday. Johnson's bond is also at 50-grand. The women allegedly gave Jeremiah Harris some heroin that they picked up in Madison, and he died of an overdose before returning to Trempealeau.
