Columbia County man receives life sentence for killing his wife

A Friesland man was sentenced to life in prison Wednesday for murdering his estranged wife.

Kevin Krueger had pleaded no contest to first-degree intentional homicide for the shooting death of Tracy Krueger on Feb. 15, 2016, at Ridge Motor Inn in Portage.

He had also pleaded no contest to a felony charge of being a felon in possession of a firearm. Charges of stalking and possession of narcotic drugs were dismissed as part of a deal.

Prosecutors say Kevin shot Tracy after finding her with another man. The two were in the middle of a divorce at the time.
