RHINELANDER - Prosecutors hope evidence from a garbage bag will help convict a 48-year-old Rhinelander woman of trying to make meth. Andrea Healy was bound over for trial after a preliminary hearing in Rhinelander on Tuesday.
According to the criminal complaint, investigators found a meth making manual titled "Methamphetamine Shake and Bake Guide" inside the garbage bag in late March. They also found prescription drugs for Healy and 49-year-old Richard Nitschke.
Healy faces charges for allegedly having meth and trying to make the drug. Healy had already been arrested in January for similar charges. Her defense lawyer, Richard Shawl, argued in court Tuesday that the garbage bag doesn't tie her to meth charges.
