Dennis Brantner was arrested on Friday morning by police in Fond du Lac County, Wisconsin on first degree murder charges
Dennis Brantner, 61, was arrested on Friday morning by police in Fond du Lac County, Wisconsin, USA, on first degree murder charges.
The Kenosha man allegedly strangled and suffocated local teen Berit Beck nearly 25 years ago. Brantner was named as a suspect in spring of 2014.
Police say new physical evidence points to him and no one else. He was arrested for the murder last week after being booked on unrelated charges.
He soon became emotional when interrogated.
"I don't remember anything. I don't wanna," Brantner told the police. "(If) I did I did...if I did I don't know."
Though he was not in custody at the time of Beck's disappearance, Brantner was arrested on an unrelated matter two weeks later on August 6 1990 and has a criminal record going back to the 1970s.
And, in 1994, he was arrested for kidnapping and beating his estranged second wife.
