Stearns County Sheriff

(St. Cloud, MN) -- A central Minnesota woman accused of providing the drugs that caused the overdose death of her neighbor is now charged with third-degree murder. Thirty-year-old Kayla Reynolds of Cold Spring is charged in the fatal overdose of 49-year-old Heidi Hiltner. The criminal complaint says Reynolds called police after she hadn’t heard or seen Hiltner for a few days. They entered Hiltner’s apartment and found her dead April 15th. The officer said he found a prescription methadone bottle on the nightstand next to Hiltner’s bed. The drug was prescribed to Reynolds. The autopsy determined Hiltner had methadone and amphetamines in her system.
