Jury convicts Daniel Bartelt of murdering Jessie Blodgett

WEST BEND, WI (WTAQ) - A 20-year-old man could spend the rest of his life in prison, after he was convicted Monday of killing a former high school classmate in southeast Wisconsin.

A Washington County jury deliberated for 3 hours before finding Daniel Bartelt guilty of first-degree intentional homicide in the strangling death of Jessie Blodgett.

Her mother testified that the 19-year-old Blodgett was at a theater group's cast party last July -- and the mother found her dead in her bed the next afternoon.

An autopsy showed that she was bound and strangled. Bartelt initially pleaded insanity, but two experts found him mentally competent to help with his defense.

Sentencing is scheduled for October 14th.

Bartelt will get a mandatory life term, but the judge can set a date for a possible supervised release at least 20 years down the line.
