A man convicted of killing a teenager 16 years ago has been sentenced in Oconto County to life in prison.
The body of 19-year-old Chad McLean was found in the Pensaukee River in March 1998, a month after he was last seen with Peter Hanson and Charles Mlados.
Judge Michael Judge Hanson told Hanson it was despicable that Hanson was silent as the McLean family languished and waited for justice in Chad's death.
The life sentence for Hanson comes 16 years to the day that McLean was reported missing by his mother. WLUK-TV says Judge ordered the sentence be served consecutively to Hanson's prison time for drug and child pornography charges.
Mlados will be tried for McLean's death in August.
