The 62-year-old Kenosha man suspected of killing Berit Beck will spend time in prison on drug-related charges.
A Fond du Lac County judge on Tuesday sentenced Dennis Brantner to six and a half years in prison, plus seven years of extended supervision and 11 years of probation, on charges of drug possession and bail jumping. The charges came about as a result of Brantner’s arrest in March of 2015, when police found prescription drugs in his boot while booking him into jail for the 1990 murder of Berit Beck.
Brantner still faces homicide charges in Beck’s death, although it remains unknown if he will be retried after a jury failed to reach a verdict last month. A hearing in that case has been set for September.
