A 22-year-old Grand Chute man convicted of breaking into a cottage in Langlade County will spend three months on probation after reaching a plea deal with prosecutors.
Prosecutors said the burglary happened in the Town of Elcho in 2010. The State Crime Lab tested a cigarette butt found at the scene on July 21, 2010 and on May 13, 2014. Prosecutors says that most recent test matched a DNA profile of Nathanial McKee, who was subsequently charged.
The victims say four bottles of liquor and a Winchester model 100 .308 semi-automatic rifle with a scope were stolen. He plead guilty to theft as result two other charges were dismissed.
McKee is in custody in the St. Croix County jail where is serving an 18 month sentence for taking a vehicle without the owner's consent.
