Cold Case Murder Trial Begins in Fond du Lac

A jury trial has started in Fond du Lac for a man accused in a decade's old cold case murder.

Jury selection began today in the trial of Dennis Brantner.

It took police almost 25 years to match Brantner's finger prints to Berit Beck's van.

Beck was 18 when she was kidnapped on her way to a computer class in Appleton in 1990.

Her body was later found in a ditch and the case went unsolved until new evidence linked Brantner to the case in 2014.

Branter's lawyers have maintained someone else is responsible for Becks' murder.
