A Wausau man police had identified as a person of interest in the 2010 disappearance of Stephanie Low will now spend the next four years in prison.
In April, Kristopher Torgerson, 33, pleaded no contest to battery and guilty to possession of methamphetamine during a plea deal with prosecutors. The cases were unrelated, but combined during his plea deal.
Monday, Torgerson was sentenced to five years in prison. He'll spend two years on extended supervision upon his release. Online court records say he'll received nearly one year credit for time already spent behind bars.
Police say Torgerson was an associate of Stephanie Low. Low was last seen October 10, 2010.
Court records do not show that charges have been filed related to Low's disappearance.
Torgerson was interviewed early on in the Low investigation. Police say new leads have lead investigators to believe Torgerson is a person of interest.
At this time police are releasing few details, as the investigation is still ongoing. If you have information regarding this case, you're asked to call the Wausau Police Department's Investigative Bureau at (715) 261-7883.
