FOND DU LAC, Wis. (AP) — The man charged with killing a teenager in 1990 has been convicted in a separate drug case in Fond du Lac County.
A jury on Thursday found 62-year-old Dennis Brantner guilty of all 10 drug counts against him, including possession of narcotics. The Reporter Media says it took jurors 45 minutes of deliberation to reach the verdicts.
Brantner, in a separate case, is accused of killing 18-year-old Berit Beck in July 1990 after she stopped in Fond du Lac while traveling from her home in Sturtevant to Appleton for a work seminar. Her van was discovered in a parking lot in Fond du Lac three days after she disappeared. Her body was discovered six weeks later.
Brantner will stand trial on those charges in June.
