Hatfield man gets life in prison for killing ex-wife, claiming she was missing
A west central Wisconsin man has been sentenced to life in prison for killing his ex-wife, and claiming she was missing while hundreds of people spent a week searching for her.
A Jackson County circuit judge agreed to let Doug Sidie, 40, of Hatfield be eligible for supervised release when he's 75.
That's five years later than what District Attorney Gerald Fox had recommended. Defense lawyer John Brinckman says he'll appeal the sentence.
