Judge Recuses Himself in Brantner Trial
Posted: Sep 13, 2016 7:33 PM CDT
The possibility of re-trying Dennis Brantner in the death of Berit Beck is on hold.
The judge recused himself from the case this afternoon.
In a Fond du Lac county courtroom, Judge Gary Sharp said he was stepping down because of comments he made to the jury after Brantner's murder case was deemed a hung jury earlier this year.
He apologized and said those comments could make it appear that he's impartial.
