A Neillsville man will spend 20 years behind bars for the 2002 shooting deaths of a Monroe County couple.

Larry Schaffer, 44, was sentenced this week in Monroe County Court. In August, he reached a plea deal with prosecutors and two counts of hiding a corpse were dismissed.

A criminal complaint says police arrested Schaffer in January after he bragged about killing 34-year-old Connie DeGeorge as her husband 30-year-old Kale Kvistad Jr. over drugs.

The two disappeared from their home on Easter Sunday in 2002, leaving three children in the house. A hunter found their remains in December 2004 under brush in a remote area near Fort McCoy. Both had been shot in the head.
