FOND DU LAC, Wis. (AP) - The man charged with killing a teenager in 1990 has been convicted in a separate drug case in Fond du Lac County.

A jury on Thursday found 62-year-old Dennis Brantner guilty of all ten drug counts against him, including possession of narcotics. The Reporter Media (https://fondul.ac/1K2ZYfw ) says it took jurors 45 minutes of deliberation to reach the verdicts.

Brantner, in a separate case, is accused of killing 18-year-old Berit Beck in July 1990 after she stopped in Fond du Lac while traveling from her home in Sturtevant to Appleton for a work seminar. Her van was discovered in a parking lot in Fond du Lac three days after she disappeared. Her body was discovered six weeks later.

Brantner will stand trial on those charges in June.
