MARKESAN, Wis. -- A mortician accused of dealing drugs at her family's Markesan, Wis., funeral home will stand trial.

Twenty-five-year-old Melissa Wachholz has pleaded not guilty to drug charges in Green Lake County Court, including maintaining a drug trafficking place. She's waived her right to a preliminary hearing.

A criminal complaint says Wachholz told investigators she traveled to Milwaukee every day to buy five to eight grams of heroin for her personal use and to sell.

The Reporter says Waccholz has worked at the funeral home with her sister since 2004.
