Two charged with supplying drugs that killed Point woman, unborn child – Stevens Point Journal

STEVENS POINT – Two men facing charges connected to the death of a Stevens Point woman and her unborn baby made appearances Monday in Portage County Circuit Court. 
Laron C. Thomas, 35, whose current address is listed as the Waupaca County Jail, made his initial appearance on charges of first-degree reckless homicide by the delivery of drugs and first-degree reckless homicide of an unborn child. 
Portage County Circuit Judge Louis Molepski Jr. set bail at $50,000 for Thomas. His next appearance is scheduled for Oct. 10. 
Isaiah N. Solis, 27, of Wisconsin Rapids, pleaded not guilty to charges of first-degree reckless homicide by the delivery of drugs, first-degree reckless homicide of an unborn child, cocaine possession with intent to deliver, LSD possession with intent to deliver, marijuana possession with intent to deliver and methamphetamine possession with intent to deliver.
Molepski scheduled Solis’ next appearance for Oct. 24. 
According to the criminal complaints, at 5:54 p.m. June 1, Solis called 911 and reported his 27-year-old girlfriend was not breathing. When police arrived, Solis led them into an apartment and to the bedroom where the woman was lying on her back. 
Solis, who didn’t live with the woman, said she was 8 months’ pregnant and he was the father. He said they both had been sleeping when he woke up and found her sitting on the floor with her head forward, according to the complaint. He said she didn’t respond to him and he realized she was likely dead when he tried to pick her up.
Solis said he tried to perform CPR on the woman. He said he didn’t know that she had taken drugs, but that she had a drug history, according to the complaint. 
Police searched the apartment and found drugs and drug paraphernalia, according to the complaint. They found a safe with drugs and money in it in a vehicle outside. Solis said he had tried to hide the safe in the vehicle, because he knew the woman had cocaine in it, according to the complaint. 
Solis said the drugs belonged to the woman, but he admitted helping her sell them, according to the complaint. On his cellphone, police found texts related to purchasing drugs and pictures of Solis with a gun, drugs and cash, according to the complaint. 
Solis said he purchased drugs from “Ron.” Police were able to determine that Ron was Thomas, according to the complaint. Police looked at video footage from an area near the apartment complex and saw Thomas going to the woman’s apartment, the complaint said. 
Both men face maximum sentences of more than 100 years in prison if they’re convicted.
