Oconto County Couple Suspected in Marinette County Overdose
12/17/2019- A couple in Oconto County Court on drug dealing charges are also suspected of playing a role in an overdose death in Marinette County. Last week, a jury found 30-year-old Chasity Denny guilty of manufacturing or delivery of methamphetamine, while acquitting her of charges of first-degree reckless homicide. Denny’s boyfriend, 29-year- old Brian Blasing, is also facing similar charges, but has been ordered to undergo a competency exam. Both were charged in May of this year following the 2018 overdose death of 33-year-old Jeffrey Pecha. Denny and Blasing are also under investigation for allegedly selling the fentanyl that killed one person in Marinette county in February of this year. That investigation has been forwarded to the Marinette County District Attorney’s Office for consideration of charges.
